OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING CENTERS FOR 16-18 YEAR-OLD YOUTH. A DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM FOR POTENTIAL OR ACTUAL DROPOUTS.
KAPLAN, LEON L.
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED TO ASCERTAIN NECESSARY PROCEDURES FOR ESTABLISHING WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS FOR ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL DROPOUTS, AGES 16 AND 17, IN THE LOS ANGELES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT. THIS SURVEY WAS MADE TO HELP PROVIDE MEANS TO MEET THE CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPULSORY CONTINUATION EDUCATION. THE STUDY DETERMINED THAT SUCH PROGRAMS WOULD STRESS INDIVIDUALLY ORIENTED, OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING WITH SUPPORTIVE EMPHASIS ON ACADEMIC SKILLS. A SPECIAL TASK FORCE CONDUCTED THE SURVEY, GATHERING DATA FROM A REVIEW OF PERTINENT LITERATURE AND FROM INTERVIEWS AND CONFERENCES WITH POTENTIAL AND ACTUAL DROPOUTS, SCHOOL DISTRICT PERSONNEL, AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM LABOR, INDUSTRY, AND GOVERNMENT. AS AN OUTCOME OF THE SURVEY, THE TASK FORCE RECOMMENDED THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TWO DEMONSTRATION CENTERS FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. ONE WOULD TRAIN STUDENTS FOR EMPLOYMENT IN THE AVIATION, ELECTRONICS, AND AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES, AND THE OTHER WOULD PROVIDE TRAINING FOR GOVERNMENTAL AND INDUSTRIAL OFFICE OCCUPATIONS. JOB ORIENTATION, WORK OBSERVATION, AND ON-THE-JOB PAID EXPERIENCE WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE CURRICULUMS. BOTH CENTERS WOULD OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETE REQUIREMENTS FOR A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA.
