This report is a descriptive analysis of the tribal Even Start Literacy Program and of families served in 1995-96. Eight of 9 tribal Even Start projects funded in 1995-96 are described and compared to 563 projects reporting nationwide (out of 576 total). Grants were awarded to federally recognized American Indian tribes or tribal organizations to help parents become full partners in their children's education, assist children in reaching their potential as learners, and provide literacy training to parents. Reporting projects averaged 31 families, providing early childhood education, parenting education, adult basic education, ged preparation, and English as a second language. Families averaged 5.l members, with at least 1 eligible child aged 0-7; 58 percent of families had annual incomes below $9,000; and 67 percent of parents lacked a high school diploma or ged. Chapter 1 of this report introduces the tribal Even Start Program. Chapter 2 describes project characteristics: funding, number of families served, rural/urban location, availability of nonproject services, staffing, staff qualifications, inservice training, agency collaboration, needs for support services, barriers to implementation, project needs for technical assistance, recruitment strategies, and content and intensity of services. Chapter 3 describes participant characteristics: family structure, size, ethnicity, and economic status; parents' education and employment status; and nonproject services received. Chapter 4 outlines participation rates by parents and children in various services, prevalence of special needs children, retention rates, and parent educational and employment status at year end. Includes 44 data tables. (Author/SV)

School-based drug prevention programs : a longitudinal study in selected school districts : executive summary : final report by E. Suyapa Silvia( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Establishing school-based drug prevention programs was the aim of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 (dfsca). A summary of the findings of a longitudinal study of dfsca is presented in this report. Revitalized in 1995 as the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (sdfsca), the Act's scope was extended to include prevention of violence. Programs in 19 school districts were studied over four years by repeatedly surveying a cohort of students, beginning when the students were in grades five and six. The study's primary purpose was to assess whether drug prevention programs make a difference for youth; and, if so, what strategies were most successful. Findings reported under "Student Behaviors, Beliefs, and Attitudes about Drugs," include comparison of the two groups' responses over time, profiles of users and non-users, and "What Students Say About Drugs." Under "Home School, and Community Risk Indicators" are topics on school environment and violence; under "Drug Prevention Programs and Their Effects on Student Outcomes" are findings on program consistency and effectiveness, student participation, and "Outcomes of Prevention Programs." A summary of study findings, conclusions, data analyses, a discussion of implications, a bibliography, and a "Glossary of Analysis Variables" are provided. (Emk)

The continuing development of local Tech-Prep initiatives by Marsha Silverberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data from national Tech-Prep surveys that were completed by more than 800 Tech-Prep consortium coordinators in fall 1993 and/or fall 1994 were analyzed to assess the emergence of Tech-Prep at the state and local levels. It was discovered that, between 1993 and 1994, the number of Tech-Prep consortia nationwide increased from 812 to 953, the percentage of consortia able to identify and count students participating in Tech-Prep increased from 29% to 53%, and the number of students identified as Tech-Prep participants increased by 150%. Tech-Prep students appeared to be achieving intermediate outcomes in greater numbers. An estimated 97% of Tech-Prep seniors graduated from high school in spring 1994 (versus 94% in 1993), and approximately 56% of 1994 Tech-Prep high school graduates entered postsecondary education or training the following fall. Between 1993 and 1994, Tech-Prep consortia continued to lay important groundwork for transformation to school-to-work systems; however, applied academic curricula, articulation agreements, and career development activities were implemented in only a relatively small proportion of consortium districts and schools. Tech-Prep progress on school-to-work features was most evident in reports of increased school-industry collaboration. (Contains 27 tables/figures) (mn)

Efforts to improve the quality of vocational education in secondary schools : impact of federal and state policies by Cathleen Stasz( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act Amendments of 1998 (Perkins III) affected the state of U.S. secondary education? Congress mandated a National Assessment of Vocational Education to determine just that. This report is part of that assessment. Using a case study sample from seven states and a national teacher survey, the authors analyzed the results to determine the impact of Perkins III in fulfilling the overall goal of improving vocational education. Given the time constraint (four years is not enough time for full implementation) and selected sample of states in the study, the authors conclude that Perkins III is having some positive affect but only within the framework of the greater influence of the individual states' general-education policies
