A Follow-up Study on Perach Children Two Years After Tutoring.
Eisenberg, Theodore; And Others
The Perach Project is a one-to-one tutoring program for the socially disadvantaged. This study's main purpose was to locate Perach Project children two years after they had been tutored in order to determine their situation in school, measure their school self-concept, aspirations, and attitudes towards school, and examine their feelings about the project in retrospect. In order to determine Perach's role in their attitudes and school situation, comparisons have been made throughout this report to a control group that was similar to Project children with respect to background variables but who had not been tutored. Great difficulty is noted in locating many of the children, and it is speculated that those who were not located were most likely in either less academic frameworks or not studying at all. Results are thought to be promising, but it is noted that in any future study it would be extremely important to locate all of the children sought so that there are no doubts as to their place in the educational system.
