Fuller, Gerald R.; Phipps, Lloyd J.
A project for developing an effective vocationally-oriented educational program to utilize the capabilities of economically and socially handicapped rural youth was divided into five major phases: (1) an in-depth study of the characteristics of a cross section of families in which the model educational program was tried, (2) an in-depth study of the most severely disadvantaged, both economically and socially, (3) development of a tentative model educational program, (4) experimental evaluation and demonstration of the model, and (5) the final analysis of data and writing of final reports. Contained in the appendixes are the major event chart, information collected, instrumentation, and a list of phase I through phase IV activities. Interim reports II and III for this project are available as VT 007 126 and VT 007 125. (DM)
