THE NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS--HELP OR HANDOUT.
HOWARD, JACK; AND OTHERS
THE SUCCESSES AND FAILURES OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS (NYC) ARE DISCUSSED IN THIS JOURNAL ISSUE DEVOTED TO THE PROGRAM. IT IS NOTED THAT ALTHOUGH A LACK OF DATA MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO REALISTICALLY EVALUATE NYC, ITS ADMINISTRATORS STRONGLY DEFEND THE PROGRAM'S RECORD IN DECREASING DROPOUTS AND JUVENILE CRIME, AND IN IMPROVING SCHOOL PERFORMANCE, HIRING PRACTICES, AND CONTINUING EDUCATION. THE PROGRAM'S CRITICS, HOWEVER, MAINTAIN THAT THE NYC IS RIDDEN WITH POLITICAL MANIPULATION, FREQUENTLY OFFERS ONLY MENIAL WORK, AND OVER-EMPHASIZES SCHOOL PROGRAMS WHILE NEGLECTING OUT-OF-SCHOOL PROJECTS FOR JOBLESS YOUTH. THE FOLLOWING PAPERS ARE PART OF THE JOURNAL--(1) JACK HOWARD, NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS--WASHINGTON VIEWS THE RECORD, (2) ROBERT SCHRANK, QUOTAS VS. QUALITY IN THE BIG CITY, (3) TED SEAVER, MISSISSIPPI'S "SIX MONTH BAG," AND (4) WILLIAM W. WATTENBERG, PROFILE OF A SCHOOL PROGRAM. ALSO INCLUDED IS A TRANSCRIPT OF A DISCUSSION IN WHICH THE PARTICIPANTS WERE MARK BATTLE, PAUL GOODMAN, ROBERT SCHRANK, SAR LEVITAN, ELI COHEN, AND LOUIS KAPP. THIS ISSUE OF "AMERICAN CHILD" IS SPRING 1967. (NH)
