Low-income community residents and Vietnam era veterans are being put to work as education auxiliaries in poverty-area schools while they study in one or more cooperating universities. The Career Opportunities Program (COP) was provided for under the Education Professions Development Act, and about 75 percent of its programs are in inner city schools. The program demonstrates how community residents can help improve educational services and also how school personnel can deliver performance-based learning. This booklet explains the program including benefits, administration, and the people served. (GEB)
