Impact of the Co-Funded Components.
Detroit Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
In 1975 the City of Detroit Public Schools were ordered by the United States District Court to improve educational services in order to eliminate vestiges of past discrimination. To this end, the school system obtained Emergency School Aid Act and State monies to fund four educational components: reading and communication skills, inservice training, testing, and guidance and counseling. This report presents early findings of evaluations of the four components. Test data from a variety of norm and criterion referenced tests for a cross-section of grade levels indicated gains in reading and communication skills. Survey responses from elementary, middle, and high school staff members indicated improved racial relations among students. Survey responses from middle and secondary school students also indicated that student racial relations had improved. Observations of test administration procedures indicated that improved testing procedures had made a positive impact. Staff and student survey data are appended. (MK)
