Abstract:

This report explores the services delivered, student performance, and characteristics of student and family supports for learning in a sample of 35 Catholic schools. The characteristics of Chapter 1 services in the sample are then compared to Chapter 1 services provided in public schools. The data are drawn from the 1992 Catholic School Supplement of "Prospects: The Congessionally Mandated Study of Educational Growth and Opportunity," a 6-year longitudinal evaluation of the impact of the Chapter 1 program. The supplementary sample of 35 Catholic schools were studied using the same methods and data-collection instruments as the "Prospects" evaluation. Unlike the "Prospects" public school sample, which was a nationally representative sample of all U.S. public schools, the Catholic school sample was not randomly drawn. Forty percent of the sample was drawn from high-poverty schools, half of the sample was from schools in the Northeast, and about 90 percent of the students lived in urban areas. Five key findings are reported. First, students in the Catholic school sample who received Chapter 1 assistance were, like Chapter 1 students in public schools, both economically and educationally disadvantaged. However, the educational challenges appeared somewhat less severe for Catholic school students. Second, Chapter 1 was well-targeted on educationally disadvantaged students in both sampled Catholic and public schools. Third, Chapter 1 services in both Catholic and public schools were delivered by pulling children out of their regular classrooms for supplementary services. Fourth, the quality of services appeared to be relatively the same in both sampled Catholic school and public school settings for Chapter 1 students. Finally, the likelihood of a child receiving the benefits of Chapter 1 services was substantially greater in public schools than in Catholic schools. (Contains 65 exhibits and 16 references.) (Lmi).
