Providing Chapter 1 services to limited English-proficient students : final report by E. William Strang( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes local procedures for implementing Chapter 1 requirements for selecting limited English-proficient (lep) students for Chapter 1 programs, and describes services for lep students through Chapter 1 and language programs. Case studies of 14 school districts in 6 states were conducted to help the Department of Education formulate appropriate guidance for school districts in providing Chapter 1 services to lep students. This report outlines these case studies, and provides the overall study's background, conclusions, and recommendations. Several districts consider students with low scores on English-language proficiency tests as ineligible for Chapter 1 reading and mathematics services and do not assess them for Chapter 1. English-language proficiency tests are used to select students for Chapter 1 funded English as a second language classes in most districts. Teacher judgments are used more often to select lep students than English-proficient ones for Chapter 1. Coordination between Chapter 1 and language services for lep students is rare at the state level. The degree to which lep students are included in Chapter 1 is related to the design of local Chapter 1 and special language programs and district personnel's perspectives about how lep students' educational experiences should be structured. Lep students can be better served by Chapter 1 programs if schools improve coordination between Chapter 1 and other programs. Statistical data are provided in 14 tables. Appendix a provides the 14 case reports. Appendix b presents 16 questionnaires and checklists administered to Chapter 1 program administrators, schools, teachers, and counselors. (Rlc)

Debt burden : the next generation : final report by Kari Alexander( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an analysis of the debt levels and debt burdens of recent 4-year college graduates, based on student-reported data from five national surveys taken over the period 1977 to 1990. Report sections first describe the data and methodology of the study; second, present these findings and identify specific sub-groups most likely to exhibit high debt burdens; third, investigate the characteristics of non-working graduates with debt to determine if they are at risk for unmanageable debt burdens; fourth, assess the effect of alternative repayment assumptions on debt burden; and fifth, summarize the key debt burden findings and identify the subgroups of borrowers with potentially high debt burdens. Major findings include the following: (1) in 1986, over 50 percent of 4-year college graduates were indebted, dropping to 45.5 percent in 1990; (2) the median debt level in 1990 was $7,000, up from $2,000 in 1977; (3) the median debt burden (ratio of repayments to income) among graduates was highest in 1977 (5.2 percent), falling to 4.7 percent in 1990; and (4) under constant loan repayment assumptions, median debt burden has risen from 3.2 percent in 1977 to 4.7 percent in 1990. Overall, the report concludes that most college students are not overly burdened by their educational loans, except those who work at extremely low-paying jobs. The appendix contains data tables showing debt burden by bachelor's degree recipients and major fields and occupations. (GLR)

New land, new knowledge : an evaluation of two education programs serving refugee and immigrant students : final report by Peter Bateman( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report evaluates how school districts across the United States have provided services to immigrant and refugee students under two federally-sponsored programs: the Transition Program for Refugee Children, and the Emergency Immigrant Education Act. The evaluation first describes the population served and the federal, state, and local administration of the two programs, then presents overall conclusions about both programs. Among these conclusions are the following items: (1) the number of eligible immigrant students in the United States has been rapidly increasing; (2) the Refugee Program served a much smaller number of students than did the Immigrant Program; (3) although Congress appropriated approximately $30 million per year for the Immigrant Program, the increasing number of eligible students has reduced the per-student grant amount each year; (4) districts and states vary in the procedures used for counting students in both programs, with consequent variation in the quality of data collected; and (5) refugee and immigrant students have strong linguistic and acculturation needs. Pro and con arguments are also presented for each of four federal policy options for the U.S. Department of Education to consider in the further planning of these programs. Appendices provide application, reporting, and monitoring forms; and a list of school districts reporting eligible students for 1989-91 by state. (Contains 15 tables, 30 references, and a 43-item bibliography.) (GLR)
Measuring employment outcomes using unemployment insurance wage records by David W Stevens( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings of a demonstration project that tested the concepts and applications of linking student records using social security numbers with state unemployment insurance (UI) wage and other data sources. It also contains information of value to policymakers, state and local administrators, practitioners, and consumers of postsecondary vocational education. Chapter I explores the value of wage data sources in examining trends regarding former students in the workplace. Chapter II provides the historical perspective and looks at the changing legislative environment and factors influencing the use of state UI wage data. Chapter III identifies needs of various audiences for employment and earnings information. Chapter IV describes concepts tested by the demonstration project as well as the data sources and elements used. Chapter V presents findings from the two-state demonstration to illustrate how wage data can be used and presented. Chapter VI provides a profile of the strength of the longitudinal perspective. Chapter VII discusses five steps for state implementation of a system to link school-based information with state UI and other state and federal wage data records: (1) plan and determine data priorities, (2) identify state and federal administrative data sources, (3) make data collection decisions, (4) develop data processing procedures, and (5) conduct data analysis. Appendixes include 91 endnotes and a discussion of the differences between outcome measures and performance standards. (YLB)

Translating dollars into services : chapter 1 resources in the context of state and local resources for education : final report by Jay Chambers( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current school funding systems established by many states are resulting in widespread disparities in expenditures across districts, and current comparability measures providing adequate guarantees for equity among schools are being questioned. This study, involving 95 elementary schools and 25 high schools in 30 school districts across 5 states, examines resource availability and allocation for schools located in high and low revenue districts. Key findings from interviews and site visits are reported for base resource differentials (the school-level resources purchased by funding sources other than Chapter 1), what Chapter 1 adds to these base levels of resources, and Chapter 1 comparability standards in the sample schools across districts. This report contains six sections, including an introduction and discussions of the base level of resources for Chapter 1 and non-Chapter 1 elementary schools, the base level of resources in terms of district revenue and school poverty, how Chapter 1 and base resources combine to meet student needs, the high school analysis, and implications of the findings for Chapter 1 reauthorization. Variations in the resource base upon which Chapter 1 builds are driven primarily by differences in district revenue, suggesting the increased targeting of Chapter 1 funds solely on poverty criteria may still deny truly supplemental services to students from high poverty schools in low revenue districts. (Contains 48 tables, 8 figures, and 118 references.) (GLR)
