FRY, EDWARD
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE KILMER JOB CORPS CENTER AND OF THE READING PROGRAM CONDUCTED AT THE CENTER IS PRESENTED. THE TOPICS DISCUSSED INCLUDE THE POPULATION OF THE JOB CORPS CAMP, THE TIME ALLOTED TO VARIOUS TRAINING ACTIVITIES, THE TEACHING STAFF, THE EQUIPMENT OF THE READING CLINIC, THE ACTIVITIES OBSERVED IN FOUR CLASSROOMS, A LIST OF UNITS FROM THE SCHOOL OF COMMERCIAL TECHNOLOGY WHERE PRINTERS WERE TRAINED, AND THE GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WHERE STUDENTS CAME TO STUDY FOR A HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY EXAMINATION. SOME OF THE PROBLEMS OF OPERATING A JOB CORPS CENTER, PARTICULARLY THOSE RELATED TO READING INSTRUCTION, ARE EXAMINED. THE PROBLEMS MENTIONED INCLUDE THE CREATION OF THE BEST TEACHING-LEARNING SITUATION FOR THE ENROLLEES, THE ELIMINATION OF THE HIGH DROPOUT RATE, THE CONTROL OF THE CONSTANT CHANGES MADE IN THE ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERNS AND PERSONNEL, THE EXPENDITURE OF ALLOTTED MONEY, AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BUSINESS ORGANIZATION RUNNING THE CAMP AND THE UNIVERSITY CONSULTANTS.
