Secondary analysis of the Emergency school assistance program : prepared for the U.S. Office of Education, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 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)

Education in Uganda by David G Scanlon( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since 1960 most of the countries in middle Africa have gained their independence and are confronting the great problems of nation building and economic development. The entire region shows both a popular enthusiasm for education and a conviction among leaders that education is a key to economic and social development. This bulletin has been developed in response to an increased need for basic information on the educational system in Uganda. The bulletin describes various levels and types of education in Uganda with emphasis upon curriculum and course content. It is based to a large extent on selected documents concerning education published or issued by the Uganda Government or schools from 1953 through 1962. The bulletin contains summaries of several of these documents that are not widely available in the United States, and extensive excerpts from some of them, such as course syllabuses used in the Uganda schools. This basic information and selected documentation should serve, then, to increase American understanding of education in that country. Appended are: (1) Senior Secondary Entrance and Junior Secondary Leaving Examination (J.S. ii) in English: 1959; (2) Training Colleges for primary-grade, primary-grade domestic science, and junior-secondary school teachers: 1961; (3) Syllabus for the 15-Week Assistant Administrative Officers' Course at the Nsamizi Training Center: 1960; and (4) The 1963 Recommendations of the Uganda Education Commission: a Summary. (Contains 140 footnotes and 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
