Educational Planning for Disadvantaged College Youth.
Froe, Otis D.
In an attempt to clarify the problems of educational planning for disadvantaged college youth, this report presents a study of the characteristics of the learner which are related to academic achievement and an analysis of the pressures and expectations of college curriculums. Behavior and attitudinal traits of disadvantaged black youth are identified and suggestions for coping with learning handicaps on the college level are offered: cultural enrichment programs, close and frequent contact with faculty members, intensified counseling and guidance aid, individualized and programed instruction, improved methods of teacher selection and training, and functional practice in the use of verbal skills.
