Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
The implementation of a work-study program in a rural, depressed area, the operation of the program, and evaluation are discussed in the first of six papers on vocational education for the retarded. The sheltered workshop at the Kurtz Training Center in Pennsylvania is described with a focus on promoting self image and adjustment. A 6-year secondary program for students with IQ's of 80 and below, located in a self-contained highschool, is considered. Also examined are two aspects of work aptitudes and prevocational evaluation in work-study programs. (RJ)
