Operation Fair Chance; The Establishment of Two Centers to Improve the Preparation of Teachers of Culturally Disadvantaged Students, Emphasizing Occupational Understanding Leading to Technical Vocational Competence. Final Report.
California State Coll., Hayward.; Fresno State Coll., CA.
The California State Colleges at Fresno and Hayward were designated Project "Centers" for the operation of the project evaluated in this report. The "Centers" were authorized to develop experimental teacher education programs which would lead to more effective preparation for teaching disadvantaged children and youth. The primary objectives implied that the Operation Fair Chance staff was to be responsible for effecting change towards a vocational educational emphasis in both the elementary and secondary curriculum. While the goals were worthy, the operational procedures were unrealistic in terms of time and financing. Drastic modification of the original proposal yielded an experimental teacher training program with its roots embedded in the traditional credential programs offered on the campus of California State College, Hayward.
