Abstract:

The Even Start Literacy Program addresses the basic educational needs of parents and children of low-income families by providing a unified program of: (1) adult basic or secondary education and literacy programs for parents; (2) assistance for parents to effectively promote their children's educational development; and (3) early childhood education for the children. This final report of the second national evaluation incorporates findings from interim analyses of data collected annually during the last 4 years as well as key findings from the first national evaluation to assess what aspects have changed and what have remained stable during the program's 8 years. Following an executive summary, the report's introduction examines program growth during the past 8 years and principles of the Even Start approach. The remaining chapters cover: (2) design and scope of the second national evaluation; (3) the needs of Even Start families; (4) what resources support the Even Start services; (5) what services Even Start projects provide to participants; (6) the extent to which Even Start families participate in the services provided; (7) educational and developmental outcomes; (8) findings from the two evaluations; and (9) conclusions. Findings include the following: (1) children achieved significant gains in cognitive development; (2) approximately 10 percent of adults attained a ged certificate while participating in Even Start in a given year; (3) service intensity, measured in hours of instructional services offered to participants, has increased steadily during the 4 years of the second evaluation; and (4) excluding families who left the program after having completed their goals, 60 percent of families in 1996-97 were continuing participation at the end of the program year (64 percent of new families; 54 percent of families continuing from previous years). The report's appendices include Even Start legislation, additional data tables, multivariate analyses in chapters 5 and 6, and additional information about the sample study. Contains 133 references.)
