Has Title I Improved Education for Disadvantaged Students? Evidence from Three National Assessments of Reading.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Five tables of data from the three surveys conducted during the 1970s by the National Assessment of Educational Progress are presented in this paper, with an interpretation of them regarding reading improvement. The paper provides comparative data from schools eligible and noneligible for Title I assistance across the following variables: age, mean reading performance, community size, race, school racial composition, geographic region, sex of student, and type of community. It then draws seven conclusions concerning reading gains during the 1970s, indicating a faster rate of reading improvement for students in Title I schools than for students in non-Title I schools.
