Five National Demonstrations of Educational Equity. Evaluation Summary.
Schubert, Jane G.
In 1980, five institutions received contracts to implement a comprehensive demonstration program of educational equity in a local education agency.A 3-year implementation phase was completed in September 1983. The contractors and their five demonstration sites were: (1) the University of Tennessee, and the Reidsville (North Carolina) City School System; (2) the NETWORK, Inc., and Quincy (Massachusetts) Public Schools; (3) Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory, and the Lincoln County (Oregon) School System; (4) American Institutes for Research, and the Tucson (Arizona) Unified School District; and (5) the University of Miami, and the Broward County (Florida) School District. This report summarizes the accomplishments of all five demonstration projects in the 3 years of implementation. An introduction (section I) describes the projects' common purpose as (1) the use of materials that contribute to an educational environment free of sex and ethnic bias; (2) helping educators to integrate equity concepts into their instructional practices; (3) providing a setting where people can observe equitable practices; (4) offering training to individuals interested in establishing equity programs in their own schools; and (5) collecting data for program evacuations. Project activities are then described in the remaining seven sections, which focus respectively on installing the demonstrations; faculty utilization of equity resources; developing faculty and administrator capabilities and improvement of Title IX compliance; establishing intern programs at the five sites; conducting parent and community outreach; evaluating the projects in terms of elementary student, secondary student, and faculty outcomes; and the equity program's legacy for the future.
