A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF RURAL CHILD CARE.
THIS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS DESIGNED FOR SEVEN EASTERN KENTUCKY COUNTIES WHICH ARE AMONG THE MOST IMPOVERISHED IN THE UNITED STATES. IN ORDER TO ALLEVIATE THE PROBLEM, THREE PROGRAMS WERE TO BE IMPLEMENTED, INCLUDING--(1) DAY CARE FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN, (2) HOMEMAKER SERVICE FOR FAMILIES, AND (3) CASEWORK SERVICE WITH BOTH PARENTS AND CHILDREN. THE MAJOR HYPOTHESIS WAS THAT A COMBINATION OF THE ENRICHED DAY CARE, HOMEMAKER, AND CASEWORK PROGRAM TO CULTURALLY DEPRIVED, ECONOMICALLY DEPENDENT FAMILIES WOULD HELP BREAK THE CHAIN OF POVERTY BY INSTILLING MOTIVATION, DEVELOPING NEW CULTURAL ATTITUDES, IMPROVING SELF-CONCEPTS, AND DEVELOPING THE LATENT VERBAL SKILLS OF THE CHILDREN. GUIDELINES FOR TESTING THE HYPOTHESIS INCLUDED MEASURING ATTITUDES AND VALUES BY THE DIRECT APPROACH THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES AND RATING SCALES AND SECONDLY IN AN INDIRECT MANNER BY PRAGMATIC, QUANTIFIABLE CRITERIA SUCH AS DIETS AND HOME IMPROVEMENTS. TREATMENT OF THE DATA WAS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH USE OF THE MULTIVARIATE METHOD OF ANALYSIS. THE RESULTS OF THE RESEARCH ARE NOT REVIEWED IN THIS REPORT. (ES)
