What Has Been Learned about Educational Change and Program Development over the Past Decade That Could Be Helpful in Designing and Implementing New Follow-Through Approaches?
Porter, John W.
While Follow Through programs over the past 12 years have been committed to meeting the expectations of government officials and other concerned citizens, the program now must document what is expected of the project and how those expectations will be measured. If this major deficiency is not addressed immediately, the program probably will end. Because no study to date has recommended the establishment of national expectations and national criterion-referenced measures, this paper attempts to do so by reviewing the history, describing the present accomplishments, and projecting the future of Project Follow Through. Four questions are addressed: (1) What did citizens expect from Follow Through between 1967 and 1979? (2) What has the program accomplished as of 1980? (3) What can the program hope to accomplish if impediments can be overcome? (4) What recommendations can be offered for designing and implementing new Follow Through approaches? (RH)
