Programs for Educationally Deprived Children. ESEA Title I Evaluation Report, September 1980 - July 1981.
Turner, W. E.
Several evaluations reports of Title I programs and activities conducted in Wichita, Kansas, elementary schools during 1980-81 are presented in this document. Compensatory education activities described include corrective reading programs, elementary mathematics programs, institutional programs for neglected and delinquent children, prekindergarten programs, parent education programs, and tuition scholarships. Separate reports are provided for programs conducted during the regular academic year and those conducted during the summer term. Each program report discusses program scope and procedures; personnel; budget; objectives; evaluation results; and comments and recommendations. Consolidated findings for all the programs indicate that (1) the majority of program participants exceeded the achievement objectives with their gains in reading and mathematics; (2) participants in the institutional programs showed measurable gains in reading and mathematics; and (3) most pupils in the prekindergarten program exhibited gains in language readiness skills, development of positive self-concept, and physical coordination, as measured by the Cooperative Preschool Inventory.
