Schools, communities, and the arts : a research compendium by Nancy Welch( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a comprehensive review of current research on the implementation of quality arts programs in U.S. schools, and an indicator of areas that need to be explored, with emphasis on community priorities and initiatives. The 49 quantitative and qualitative reports, articles, and dissertations are divided into five sections: (1) six are evaluation studies of "broad-based" arts programs implemented at many grade levels and in a variety of settings, which concern programs that tend to involve more than one arts discipline, include the arts in multiple roles, or involve a large number of people; (2) 17 are smaller-scale "targeted" studies, using various methodologies, and tend to focus on one arts discipline or type of student or to examine a specific research question; (3) nine present "compilations" of research in a particular area, often cutting across disciplines; (4) 12 describe "attitudes" among students and parents and public opinion, on issues and programs, including studies that focus on students perspectives about the arts and their experiences; and (5) five highlight the "status" of arts education and the arts economic impact at the local level.

Kids Count factbook : Arizona's children, 1994 by Louann Bierlein( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the second comprehensive look at the conditions of children and families in Arizona. Building upon information presented in the 1992 Factbook, this document presents and analyzes 48 indicators of child well-being. Following the executive summary and tables, chapter 1 provides an overview of the data for the state as a whole, including a summary of key findings and tables depicting raw numbers, rates adjusted for population growth, and rate changes over time. Racial and ethnic breakdowns are presented when such data are available. Chapters 2-16 offer individual county profiles, following the general format established in the state chapter. These chapters offer insights into regional variations and identify varying conditions for children across the state. The report charts data within the state and county chapters for each of the following six categories: (1) poverty; (2) child health and safety; (3) child abuse/neglect and out-of-home care; (4) early care and education; (5) children in school; and (6) teens at-risk. Overall, findings reveal significant improvements for a few indicators since 1990, most notably within birth-related items, such as an increase in the percent of women receiving timely prenatal care and a decrease in low birth-weight births. Findings also suggest there has been a worsening for many indicators, including poverty, firearm-related deaths and hospitalizations, alleged child abuse incidents, and births to teens. (Tjq)

Job linkages review : promise and challenge by Nancy Welch( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1996, the City of Phoenix Enterprise Community Job Linkages Initiative sought to increase employment by matching local people with local jobs. Evaluation of the second project at Friendly House found that Friendly House, during the 18 months of the grant, increased residents' employability skills and linked them with Enterprise Community employers through the following seven services: job readiness training, introduction to computers, case management, support services, job placement assistance, and follow-up at 30, 60, 90, and 120 days after employment. Of 51 people who began working, 65 percent completed the retention period. It was estimated that program participants earned a total of approximately $367,000 during the pilot period. Fifty-eight percent of participants said that the program was excellent; the remaining 42 percent rated it as good. Women outnumbered men in the program, and 85 percent of the participants were Hispanic. More than half were 21 to 34 years of age. Approximately 75 percent were single, divorced, or separated, and many were single parents. The report concludes that if community groups want to increase employment, they must be prepared for a complex, demanding effort. (Included in the report are an executive summary; recommendations; and discussions on: the importance of matching people and jobs; conveying a sense of caring and personal support; the stresses caused by the "numbers" orientation of performance contracting; and program development issues such as using technology, creating alliances, addressing language barriers, and creating a continuum of services.)
