Title VII Project Sabor, 1978-1979. Final Evaluation Report.
An evaluation of Project SABOR, a bilingual education program funded under Title VII and carried out in seven elementary and junior high schools in the Bronx, New York, is presented in this paper. First the evaluation design is described. Then the program is outlined, with information presented regarding its educational objectives, number of students projected and enrolled, language proficiency of students (three-quarters were identified as having limited English proficiency), teacher/student ratio, staffing patterns, materials and equipment, classroom activities, staff training, and instructional activities. Program objectives accomplished by the end of the first year of SABOR are identified. The opinion is expressed that, although the program's objectives were too ambitious and administrative problems hampered its early implementation, the program should be continued. Extensive recommendations regarding instructional materials, additional bilingual staff, staff training, and the expansion of instruction to younger grades (the program currently serves only grades 4-8) are also offered.
