THE MADISON AREA PROJECT--WORLD-OF-WORK PROGRAM.
CANGEMI, JOSEPH P.; FANTINI, MARIO D.
GOALS OF THE PROJECT ARE TO INVESTIGATE AVAILABLE RESEARCH CONCERNING DROPOUTS, TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL DROPOUTS, TO IDENTIFY PROBLEMS CONNECTED WITH DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL, TO INCREASE THE SCHOOL-HOLDING POWER, TO EQUIP UNSKILLED STUDENTS WITH SKILLS, TO INCREASE VOCATIONAL, ACADEMIC, SOCIAL, AND COMMUNITY KNOWLEDGE AND INTERESTS, AND TO DEVELOP POSITIVE VOCATIONAL ATTITUDES. THE STEP PROGRAM INCLUDED IN THE PROJECT WILL ESSENTIALLY BE ONE OF WORK-STUDY IN WHICH ONE HALF DAY IS SPENT IN SCHOOL IN THE REGULAR ACADEMIC CLASSROOM WITH THE SPENT ON THE JOB, SECURING ON-THE-JOB TRAINING. PART OF THE PROGRAM'S PURPOSE IS TO OFFER GREATER ASSISTANCE TO THE POTENTIAL DROPOUT ONCE HE HAS DECIDED THAT HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN SCHOOL. OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE IN THE COUNSELING PROGRAM FOR PAST DROPOUTS IS THE ABSENCE OF AN AGE CEILING. IF AN INDIVIDUAL DESIRES TO FINISH HIS EDUCATION HE MAY FOLLOW ONE OF FOUR PLANS, COMPLETE RESUMPTION OF SCHOOL, COMPLETE RESUMPTION WITH PART-TIME WORK, THE WORK STUDY PROGRAM, OR NIGHT SCHOOL CLASSES AND FULL TIME WORK. THE MADISON AREA EMPLOYMENT AGENCY WILL HELP SAVE THOSE YOUTH WHO ARE IN FINANCIAL NEED WHILE ENROLLED IN THE CONVENTIONAL CURRICULUM. CURRICULUM AND TESTING PROCEDURES WILL BE MODIFIED IN LIGHT OF DIFFERENCES IN STUDENT GOALS AND ACADEMIC DESIRES. THE AGENCY WILL SEND RELIABLE STUDENTS TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN NEED OF SPECIFIC SERVICES AT A GIVEN TIME.
