OVERVIEW OF THE WORLD-OF-WORK TRAINING PROGRAM AND AN EXPLANATION OF THE CADET TRAINING PROGRAM.
FANTINI, MARIO D.
TO CURTAIL THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL DROPOUTS THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE FOR STUDENT NEEDS FROM THE PRESCHOOL LEVEL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL. IN THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM, THE CURRICULUM IS STRUCTURED TO PROVIDE INCREASED EDUCATIONAL MOTIVATION AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT DEPENDING UPON THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF THE CHILD. IN THE ELEMENTARY PROGRAM, SPECIAL EMPHASIS IS ON READING MOTIVATION AND THE GROWTH OF SELF-AWARENESS. COUNSELING IS AVAILABLE FOR THE EXPANSION OF A CHILD'S LEARNING PROGRAM. THE CADET TRAINING PROGRAM HAS BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE JUNIOR HIGH CURRICULUM. ITS MAIN PURPOSE IS TO PROVIDE POTENTIAL DROPOUTS WITH A WORK-STUDY PROGRAM SUITED TO THEIR IMMEDIATE NEEDS. LOCAL BUSINESSES AND INDUSTRIES ARE USED AS TRAINING ENVIRONMENTS, AND A SCHOOL-TO-EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM OF LEARNING IS ARRANGED BY THE SCHOOL COORDINATOR. A STUDENT SPENDS PART OF THE DAY AT SCHOOL (FOLLOWING AN INDIVIDUAL COURSE OF STUDY RELATED TO THE OCCUPATIONAL FIELD HE HAS SELECTED) AND PART OF IT ON THE JOB. IN ADDITION TO MOTIVATING THE STUDENT TO CONTINUE TO WORK FOR A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, THE CADET TRAINING PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATION OF THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC VALUES OF PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, AND CONSUMPTION OF GOODS. THE CADET LEARNER IS ABLE TO DISCOVER HIS OWN INTERESTS, APTITUDES, AND ABILITIES, HE ALSO GAINS EXPERIENCE IN UNDERSTANDING OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AND IN APPLYING FOR POSITIONS. LATER, THE STUDENT MAY WISH TO ENTER THE INTERNSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM, THE CERTIFICATE-NIGHT SCHOOL PROGRAM, OR THE APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING PROGRAM, ALL OF WHICH LEAD TO A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA.
