A study examined the cost effectiveness of Reading Recovery in the Fall River, Massachusetts Public Schools. Costs per pupil and total costs were calculated and compared to the cost of referring students for special education or Title I services had Reading Recovery services not been available. Results indicated a net savings of nearly $1.3 million over a two-school-year period. Findings demonstrating the cost effectiveness of Reading Recovery helped achieve change in the district's hiring policy and contributed to the passage of a state bill to help fund the training of Reading Recovery teachers. Contains 3 references and 5 tables of data. (RS)
