Follow Through: Lessons Learned from Its Evaluation and Need to Improve Its Administration. Report to the Congress by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
This report points out that although Follow Through, an experimental program designed to find more effective approaches to teaching young children from low-income families, achieved differences in outcome between Follow Through and non-Follow Through children, problems in its initial design and implementation will limit reaching statistically reliable conclusions as to which approaches are successful. The report recalls the events which led to a reorganization of the national evaluation of Follow Through, and suggests ways to prevent similar happenings. (Author)
