Evaluation of the Even Start--Padres y Progreso Program in the Houston Independent School District.
Stevens, Carla J.; And Others
The Even Start-Padres y Progreso program is a nationally funded program designed to prepare young children to enter school by not only offering early childhood education, but also assisting their families with adult literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL), parenting-skills training, and employment-skills training. An evaluation of the program was conducted in the Houston (Texas) Independent School District at an elementary school. At the end of the first year of implementation, test results for a sample of 50 parents indicated that the parents improved in literacy and life skills as measured by the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS), and the children improved in developmental ability and preparedness for school as measured by the Pre-School Inventory (PSI) and in English-vocabulary acquisition as measured by the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised (PPVT-R). Five tables present study findings. (Contains 31 references.) (SLD)
