An Evaluation of 1970 Summer Work-Study Programs.
Ebey, George W.; And Others
This summer work-study program enrolled 1,163, high school students from eight urban school districts. In order to evaluate the program, 240 interviews were held with students, teachers, teacher aides, work supervisors, project coordinators, and district general administrators. Reactions by all groups were enthusiastic, with the major complaints involving the need for expansion of the program. There was general agreement that this program was better than either of the two previous programs, despite a drop in enrollment. Recommendations were made for: (1) providing ongoing programs, (2) early funding to assure effective planning, (3) relaxing age requirements, (4) extending programs to reach all high school students, (5) improving communications between districts, (6) extending the work portion of the program to commercial organizations, and (7) holding a conference to plan a continuing year-round program.
