Prospects, the congressionally mandated study of educational growth and opportunity : first year report on language minority and limited English proficient students by Marc Moss( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents descriptive findings from the Language Minority/Limited English Proficiency Student Supplement of "Prospects," a six-year longitudinal evaluation concerning the impact of federal Chapter 1 programs. These programs provide supplemental instruction to low-achieving elementary and secondary school students in low-income schools. Instructional areas supported by Chapter 1 include: reading, mathematics, language arts, English-as-a-Second Language (esl), and bilingual education. Survey and achievement data were collected from a nationally representative sample of three student cohorts beginning in grades 1, 3, and 7. The report presents data from the first two years of data collection (1991 and 1992) for two of the cohorts (grades 1 and 3), including extensive demographic information, student out-of-school behaviors and home support, student academic performance as measured by standardized tests, teacher judgment, and self-report, school attendance and grade retention patterns, and the kind, quality, and extent of educational services provided to lep students. Findings show that lep students who attend public school are particularly disadvantaged. They come from poor families and live in urban communities with high concentrations of poverty. Their parents have especially low levels of educational attainment, are often unemployed, have only limited proficiency in English, and rarely speak English at home. Despite the importance of early educational intervention, the parents of lep students are less likely than other parents to send their children to kindergarten. It is concluded that Chapter 1 policies should be particularly sensitive to the needs of low-achieving lep students, who are more likely to be in low-income schools or schools without adequate services, and who may have difficulty taking standardized tests in English. In addition, the need for more staff training to assist this population is highlighted. (Mse)

National evaluation of the Even Start Family Literacy Program : 1994-1997 final report by Fumiyo Tao( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a descriptive analysis of the migrant education Even Start Literacy Program and of families served in 1995-96. The 9 migrant Even Start projects funded in 1995-96 are described and compared to 563 reporting projects nationwide (out of 576 total). Nine state educational agencies received grants to help parents of currently migratory children become full partners in their children's education, assist these children in reaching their potential as learners, and provide literacy training to parents. Migrant projects averaged 103 enrolled families and 63 participating families, and provided early childhood education, parenting education, adult basic education, ged preparation, and English as a second language. Families averaged 6.2 members, with at least 1 child aged 0-7 (as required); 55 percent of families had annual incomes below $9,000; 71 percent did not speak English at home; and 87 percent of parents lacked a high school diploma or ged. Chapter 1 introduces the migrant 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, economic status, and length of U.S. residence; parents' education, English language proficiency, 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. Contains 48 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 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Establishing school-based drug prevention programs was the aim of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 (dfsca). The extent to which DFSCA-funded programs made a difference in helping states and localities prevent or reduce drug use and some of the effective prevention strategies and programs for use with school-aged youth are examined in this report. Site visits were made to 19 participating school districts to determine: (1) rationale for the adoption or use of chosen program components; (2) content, organization, and delivery of the prevention program; (3) types of evaluations the programs had conducted; and (4) the extent to which districts/schools were able to implement program activities as planned, and why. Key findings are presented under the headings of"Program Content,""Program Staffing", and "Evaluation." Overall, dfsca was successful in encouraging these school districts to establish or expand their school-based prevention programs. Content and quality of the efforts varied. Factors that facilitated implementation, barriers to achieving full implementation, and needs for technical assistance are discussed. Attachments include dfsca as amended in 1989 and a list of "Prevention Specific Curricula" used by the districts under review. (Emk)

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

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 292 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)
