PROGRAMS TO UPGRADE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED YOUTH IN NEW YORK CITY.
KARPAS, MELVIN R.
THE TWO PROGRAMS REVIEWED ARE THE DEMONSTRATION GUIDANCE PROJECT AND HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM. CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DEMONSTRATION GUIDANCE PROJECT INCLUDED EXTRA TEACHERS, SPECIAL TUTORING, GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING, CLINICAL SERVICES, INTENSIVE COURSES IN ENGLISH, CULTURAL, AND ARTISTIC EVENTS. THE PROJECT STARTED WITH JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND FOLLOWED THEM THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL. RESULTS SHOWED THAT THE IQ'S OF THESE CHILDREN INCREASED BY HIGH SCHOOL AGE. THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM UTILIZED THE METHODS OF THE DEMONSTRATION GUIDANCE PROJECT. IT ALSO INCLUDED ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, AND IT ALLOWED EACH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO EXPERIMENT IN MEETING ITS OWN PARTICULAR REQUIREMENTS. THROUGH THESE SPECIAL SERVICES, THE STUDENTS INCREASED THEIR EDUCATIONAL LEVELS AND ASPIRATIONS. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT WHAT THE STUDENTS LEARN IS POSITIVELY CORRELATED WITH HOW MUCH EFFORT IS MADE TO EDUCATE THEM.
