A School and Work Program in An Adult Manpower Setting for Potential Dropouts Needing Educational Redirection. Evaluation of State Urban Education Programs in New York City 1968-69.
The objectives of this High School Redirection Project were to redirect potential dropouts to continue full-time education and training with an educational-vocational plan, to provide high school dropouts with job skills that will enable them to enter the labor market on the highest possible level while continuing to upgrade their skills on a part-time basis, and to test a curriculum designed for out-of-school youths and adults in which the skills of training, basic education, and job orientation (group counseling) are directly related to the skills needed for success on the job. This project functioned with the Manpower Development Training Program (MDTP) in a cooperative school and work program. The basic education curriculum included English, general mathematics, civil service preparation, job skills, and a group guidance session. Students' jobs fell into three categories: clerical, health occupations, and maintenance. Evaluation was based on questionnaires, interviews, observation visits, and examination of school records.
