School, Community and Youth. Statewide Evaluation of Part G Programs in Cooperative Vocational Education in the State of Illinois/1971-1972.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale.
Two types of educational programs were designed to reach the potential dropout of 14-15 years of age and the early school leaver. The first program, known as the Work Experience and Career Exploration Program (WECEP), was developed to expose potential dropouts to the world of work and to impress upon them the importance of a high school education. The second program, the Early School Leaver Program (ESL), provides an opportunity to upgrade job skills by exploring the world of work and by acquiring greater academic skills. This document represents an evaluation of these programs and includes research data on: (1) student characteristics, (2) the health study, (3) sleep and nutrition patterns, (4) student gains, (5) program characteristics, (6) teacher-coordinator profile, (7) program administration, (8) costs allowed to employers and students, and (9) applications of a cost-benefit model to programs in cooperative vocational education.
