Development of Human Resources through a Vocationally Oriented Educational Program for Disadvantaged Families in Depressed Rural Areas. Interim Report No. 1.
Fuller, Gerald R.; Phipps, Lloyd J.
Project REDY (Rural Education-Disadvantaged Youth) was initiated by the University of Illinois on June 1, 1965, and is scheduled to terminate June 30, 1970. The objectives of the project were: (1) to study in depth a depressed rural area and to identify conditions and trends that typify the area; (2) to develop and conduct a model vocationally-oriented education program; and (3) to evaluate the model program through an experimental treatment. Disadvantaged rural families, primarily concentrated in 20 counties in Illinois, served as the population universe. The PERT technique was adopted to provide a guide for the management of events and activities. The project was designed to be conducted in 5 correlated phases. At the time of this report, Phase 4 was nearing its midpoint. The Appendices contain major event PERT charts, information collected, instrumentation, and phase activities. A bibliography concludes the report. Related documents are RC 002 835 and RC 002 836. (SW)
