Model for Identifying, Profiling, Recruiting, and Serving the Disadvantaged in Kentucky.
Harcourt, Jules; And Others
This booklet contains suggestions and procedures for identifying, profiling, recruiting, and serving the disadvantaged persons in a given geographic area in Kentucky through vocational education. The five steps/tasks in the model are described in chronological order, namely (1) defining the population (disadvantaged) which will be served, (2) identifying numerically and statistically economic and academic disadvantaged, (3) profiling (surveying and analyzing various special segments of the disadvantaged population), (4) recruiting the disadvantaged to enroll in the educational programs planned for them, and (5) serving the disadvantaged. Discussion of this fifth step emphasizes the three factors that lead to success in providing vocational education to disadvantaged students: providing quality instruction, gaining comprehensive knowledge of the students, and meeting their special needs. Appendixes, amounting to almost three-fourths of the report, include an example analysis of identifying the disadvantaged, a survey questionnaire for use in the profile step of the model, suggestions for training interviewers to survey special segments, and an example analysis of survey responses to show the development of a profile.
