It was a collaboration between Johns Hopkins University and Howard University.

This report identifies programs that have proven to be effective and programs that show potential for improving academic achievement among Latino youth in the elementary and middle grades. This report targets not only programs specifically designed for this population, but also programs that have worked with other children and that have been disseminated with Latino children. In addition to a large ERIC search, National Diffusion Network validated programs and Title VII Academic Excellence Award programs were contacted for their evidence of effectiveness. Criteria for inclusion included evidence of effectiveness, replicability, and evaluation or application with Latino students.en_US
