Frick, Herman L.
Prepared under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, this 1969 document outlines the scope and nature of a K-12 program designed to meet the educational needs of the rural disadvantaged youth of Leflore County, Mississippi. It is noted that the young people of this county are products of rural poverty, with 83% of the non-white and close to 49% of the white population having annual family incomes below $2,000. The nature of learning experiences needed in the curriculum for these students is described in terms of (1) establishing goals and values which the students understand and accept, (2) achieving an understanding of their cultural heritage, (3) acquiring the skills necessary for participation in the culture, and (4) acquiring and making a specialized contribution to society. The work to be done in each curriculum area is discussed with specific suggestions. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AN)
