Summary

This report found that Corps members enabled the schools to give more individualized instruction, provide expanded classroom and extracurricular activities, and improve the ratio of students to teachers. Corps members introduced English as a second language, and science and algebra taught in Spanish. School officials and teachers believed that the interns were well prepared for teaching and communicated well with the children. Some believed that the individual instruction and classes taught in Spanish were especially beneficial. The interns assigned to two high schools did not get along well with the faculty, and some were reassigned to elementary schools while others resigned. At one elementary school two full-time regular teaching positions were filled by Corps members, contrary to the requirements of the legislation. As a result of the program the university developed a similar teacher internship sequence in the regular teacher education program to meet the needs of Spanish-speaking children, and a center for studies in rural and migrant education. The report recommends that the Office of Education should monitor the program more closely to ensure that Corps members are correctly used and to help create a cooperative attitude in the participating schools.
