Cleveland Urban Learning Community (CULC): Evaluation Report
Cleveland State Univ., OH.
This report, prepared by students of the College of Education at Cleveland State University, evaluates the Cleveland Urban Learning Community (CULC), a secondary school dedicated to building a sense of community by matching student interest with student learning, and encouraging tolerance for cultural diversity. The evaluation sought to measure the school's achievement for each of its stated goals as well as its ability to assess student academic progress. Students, school staff, parents, graduates, and community members involved with the school were interviewed. Interview results indicate that there is overall satisfaction with the CULC as a community building experience. In regard to congruence between curriculum and student interests, data show that students' interests are given full attention. The paper states that CULC has little or no systematic approach for determining students' academic progress. Finally, concerning the school's goal of encouraging tolerance, it is said that the school's commitment is clearly evidenced in school activities, and the students evince an appreciation of cultural diversity. The appendix contains evaluation materials, including interview questions and answers. (APM)
