Liaw, Shoubee; And Others
This report (1975-76) details the extent to which the Urban, Rural, Racial, Disadvantaged Educational Programs (URRD) in Seattle have met the URRD minimum standards for evaluation of effectiveness as defined in the Washington State Administrative Code. URRD programs are defined as state funded efforts which provide special services to students who are not succeeding in school because they are from disadvantaged, poverty, or minority backgrounds. In the first section descriptions are provided of the population considered in the study (Black, Spanish surnamed, Asian American, Native American, White, and Other) and the method of data collection. The second section presents data regarding the effectiveness of five types of URRD programs: reentry motivation, academic achievement, bilingual/bicultural, Indian education, and preschool. A summary of the report's findings and conclusions are contained in the last section. (APM)
