1979-1980 Hartford Project Concern Program. Final Evaluation Report 80-20.
Iwanicki, Edward F.; Gable, Robert K.
The Project Concern Program, which sought to promote school desegregation through cooperation among schools in Hartford, Connecticut, and its suburbs, is evaluated in this report. The evaluation addresses the following areas: (1) career patterns of project graduates, dropouts, and non-participants in Hartford; (2) issues of attrition; and (3) the project's cognitive and affective impact on students. Survey data indicated that Project Concern graduates made higher occupational choices and became involved in post secondary education at a greater rate than other groups. Results of a survey of second through eighth graders suggested that students had positive attitudes toward themselves and school. Academic achievement data was incomplete. The program attrition rate was 8.2 percent with most students leaving for disciplinary and social reasons. Evaluative data are included in tables and appendices. (MK)
