Compensatory Education Programs

All Topics arrow Education arrow Educational Programs arrow Compensatory Education Programs

Programs, usually within the formal education system, that provide supplementary instructional services for children who are experiencing learning difficulties and are at risk for academic failure and/or dropping out of school, often as a result of living in poverty, experiencing racism, growing up in single-parent or other nontraditional family structures, entering school with a primary language other than English or other social and cultural factors. Compensatory education programs target students who are performing significantly below achievement expectations in language arts, math and/or reading; and feature low teacher-student ratios, individualized instruction, cross-age tutoring and, in some areas, a wide variety of field trips and cultural experiences.
