Statistical Study of Project Newgate Students, Ashland, Kentucky.
Morehead State Univ., KY.
An attempt was made to determine the number of Project Newgate students enrolled in each of the courses taught at the Federal Youth Center (FYC), Ashland, Kentucky, the program of studies the various students were enrolled in, the number of students on parole, and their status at the time of the study. Data on each class and student, past and present, were compiled. The results indicated that a total of 27 students were enrolled in two American history classes, 23 in two sociology classes, 15 in a geography class, 25 in two English composition classes, 22 in a general mathematics class, and 10 in an introduction to biological science class. Current program enrollments totaled 10 students in college prep, 27 in college, and 3 in study release. A total of 67 students were on parole. Results further indicated that 30 students have participated in the FYC-Ashland Community College study release program, 30 are attending colleges or universities throughout the eastern part of the country, 9 are in vocational training programs, and 4 former students have completed vocational training programs and are currently employed in related trades. Thirteen of 67 placements have failed to continue their school program, 21 have found satisfactory employment, and only 3 have failed to make satisfactory adjustments to society. (JS)
