Innovative Opportunities for the Returning Woman.
Weinbaum, Batya
In this speech the author discusses Project Chance: Alternatives for Women. The innovative community-based program in New York City was designed to meet the special needs of adult women whose education has been interrupted. The first half of the presentation briefly describes varied aspects of the program, such as re-entry non-credit courses, credit courses, coordination, the core syllabus in skill development, flexible teaching materials, and evaluation. The last half of the speech, placing the Project in the larger national and longer historical perspective, covers the relationship between the women's movement and the push for continuing education for women, economic discrimination experienced by women, and the need for women to take advantage of increased educational opportunities to improve their job status, particularly in the professional and technical areas.
