Baltimore City Public Schools, MD.
Evaluation results of 1980-81 compensatory education programs for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children in 73 Baltimore, Maryland public and private schools are presented in this report. The program provided early learning experiences in reading, mathematics, and language for educationally disadvantaged 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds to enhance their future achievement in the basic skills. Public school pre-kindergarten participants met their targeted objectives by showing gains in reading, language, and mathematics as indicated by their performance on the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts. Public school kindergarten pupils also met their objectives. Private school kindergarten pupils met the targeted gains in language and mathematics. Matched pretest and posttest scores were not available for private school pre-kindergarten participants. The program also provided health services for eligible children. The report includes detailed tables on program objectives, achievement test results, number and types of program participants, degree of parent participation, number and types of staff involved, and the extent and kinds of health services provided.
