CHARACTERISTICS OF POTENTIAL DROPOUTS INCLUDE LACK OF INTEREST, SEVERE RETARDATION IN READING, AND WITHDRAWAL TENDENCIES. MORE THAN 600 HOMES WERE VISITED BY FOUR TRAINED SOCIAL WORKERS. OBJECTIVES WERE TO OBTAIN PERMISSION TO PLACE EACH PUPIL IN THE PROGRAM AND TO GAIN INSIGHT INTO THE FAMILIES, THEIR GOALS FOR THEIR CHILDREN, THE VALUES THEY PLACE ON EDUCATION, AND POSSIBLE WAYS OF UPGRADING THE FAMILY THROUGH EFFORTS IN ADULT EDUCATION. A SKELETON OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDED HIGHLY INDIVIDUALIZED, FLEXIBLE INSTRUCTION, INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS, A DAY-BY-DAY MEANINGFUL INTEGRATION OF SUBJECTS AND TRANSFER-TO-LIFE SITUATIONS, AND THE USE OF A VISUAL, CONCRETE, DIRECT APPROACH. ANOTHER FACET WAS THE SUBSIDIZED JOB EXPERIENCE.
