Center for Vocational Arts, Norwalk, CT.; New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
This document is an appendix to the second interim report, "A Pilot Project to Develop a Program of Occupational Training for School Alienated Youth," VT 007 457. Included are the complete reports of the 1967-68 evaluation done by the Office of Field Research and School Services, New York University: (1) A Comparative Study of the Perception of the School by the Students, (2) How Students at the Center for Vocational Arts See Themselves and (3) People Do Change: Case Study Reports on the Students. The reports indicate that the Center for Vocational Arts is rebuilding academically and personally defeated students who were simply not making it in the traditional school. The case studies show the students to be upward bound due to being understood, with a curriculum they can master, with a work-oriented training program leading toward a salable skill, and with counselors, instructors, administrators, and a community working with and for them.
