Secondary analysis of the Emergency school assistance program by Henry W Acland( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The original evaluation of the effect of Emergency School Assistance Programs (esap) in the second year, indicated that black male tenth graders in schools receiving the emergency aid did significantly better on a test of academic performance than did similar students in non-funded comparison schools. No program effects were reported for other groups of students. The analysis reported here accounts for the programs effect on black males. The orientation of this investigation is exploratory and not confirmatory in nature, and this is reflected in all stages of the work. The aim is to search for clues, not clear-cut certainties, about the existence and causes of program success. Basically five issues are addressed as follows: (1) did esap alter the racial climate of the funded schools; (2) are there relationships between student educational performance and non-cognitive variables that are dependent on his race and sex; (3) what did esap buy; (4) can teacher and student non-cognitive variables be related to particular educational programs; and, (5) can educational achievement levels be linked to non-cognitive variables and these in turn to educational programs. It is suggested that esap changes the attitudes and behaviors of white males and black females in a positive direction. (Author/AM)

Sweden. Educational Data by Margaret L King( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Today Sweden has a highly developed comprehensive system of public elementary and secondary schools, along with universities and other institutions of higher education. Most of the actual administration of educational matters is the responsibility of three appointed national government agencies operating under the overall jurisdiction of the Minister of Education and Ecclesiastical Affairs --National Board of Education, Board of Institutes of Technology, Office of the Chancellor of Universities. Most types of schools are operated by local school committees. Financing of education comes from the National Government and the Municipalities. Compulsory schooling begins at the age of seven and lasts for seven years. Because a number of types of older secondary schools exist, there are several paths open to the student --upper secondary schools, vocational schools, or art and music schools. Sweden has four universities, two higher technological institutions, and fifteen special institutions of higher education. As far as teacher education is concerned, students usually begin teacher training midway through secondary school. Folk High Schools are the chief means of carrying on adult education activities. Special education is also an integral part of the educational system. (Sbe)

State Constitutional Provisions and Selected Legal Materials Relating to Public School Finance by Linda E Perle( )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides a general overview of those State constitutional provisions and some of the related statutes and case law that must be considered in designing school finance legislation and in understanding the issues being raised in school finance litigation in State courts throughout the country. While the publication was designed primarily as a research tool for lawyers and legislators already familiar with school finance issues, it can be used by laymen as well to obtain a general understanding of the kinds of requirements demanded by State constitutions. The first part of the document is composed of four summary tables that analyze, classify, and compare the major categories of constitutional provisions more fully detailed in the second part. The second part offers a State-by-State compendium of those constitutional provisions most likely to be important in determining educational requirements, selected statutory material signifying the importance attached to the education function by eact State, and interpretative case law indicating the particular constitutional gloss given those provisions by the State courts.
