RE-EDUCATION OF UNEMPLOYED AND UNSKILLED WORKERS.
BROOKS, LYMAN B.; AND OTHERS
PROGRAMS WERE PLANNED AND DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE UNSKILLED WORKERS WITH THE TRAINING NECESSARY TO COMPETE IN THE CURRENT LABOR MARKET. SUBJECTS WERE ASSIGNED TO FOUR GROUPS--(1) THE MAIN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP, (2) THE SUBSIDIARY EXPERIMENTAL GROUP, (3) THE SUBSIDIARY CONTROL GROUP, AND (4) THE MAIN CONTROL GROUP. THE GROUPS RECEIVED VARIOUS TREATMENTS OF INSTRUCTION AND COUNSELING. DATA WERE COLLECTED IN FIVE AREAS AND ANALYZED COMPARATIVELY. IT WAS GENERALLY FOUND THAT INDIVIDUAL GUIDANCE ENHANCES ATTITUDE IMPROVEMENT, THAT THE TRAINEES RECEIVED BETTER EMPLOYMENT, AND THAT GENERAL EDUCATION IMPROVES THE SUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE OF A WORKER. THE IMPLICATIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH INDICATE A NUMBER OF AREAS THAT NEED ATTENTION. GENERAL EDUCATION SHOULD BE A BROADENING EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE, AND BE DIRECTED TO THE FAMILY UNITS AS WELL AS THE TRAINEES. (RS)
