Margaret Tinsley and other parents of the Ravenswood School District filed a petition to combat the disparity in the quality of education between their school district and surrounding districts. A program was created in 1986 as part of the Settlement Order in San Mateo County Court. 30 years later, researchers and some local residents believe this program to be largely ineffective. My research will serve as a needs assessment for the program in the form of an action research study. After identifying significant issues, I will formulate solutions and present them to the administrators of the program.
