Kimbrough, Jackie; And Others
This is one part of an evaluation of the Los Angeles Unified School District's Predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian, and other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) student integration programs. The evaluation is based on data collected from staff, students, and parents during 1982-83, at schools that are at least 70% non-Anglo. This volume contains three Sections, A-C, out of six in the technical portion of the report. Chapter I introduces the report and provides a history of PHBAO programs. The evaluation design is described as having four analytic approaches: a harms analysis, an implementation analysis, an effectiveness analysis, and an analysis of achievement and attitude data. Chapters II-VIII present implementation and progress data for seven programs--Computer Assistance, Curriculum Alignment, Project Textbooks, Student-to-Student Interaction, Supplemental Counseling, Urban Classroom Teacher Program, and Bilingual Classroom Teacher Program. Chapter IX is concerned with measuring the changes in student attitudes. Chapter X presents findings related to the effectiveness of seven PHBAO programs. Chapters X-XIII presents findings related to the amelioration of the harms of low achievement, lack of access to postsecondary opportunity, interracial hostility and low self-esteem. Chapter XIV presents results of 1982 achievement and attitude tests, and Chapter XV, the overall summary and conclusions. Section B evaluates a program which prepares high school students for acceptance at professional health schools (MED-COR) and Section C evaluates a prekindergarten language development program.
