The Lincoln Project: A Study of the Educational Program of a Junior High School in a Transitional Neighborhood. A Report of the Lincoln Guidance Research Project.
Segel, David; Ruble, Ronald A.
The Lincoln Guidance Research Project, funded by the National Defense Education Act, studied a group of junior high school students in a transitional neighborhood with major emphasis on educational needs of students who will find employment in service occupations. Recommendations included intensive remedial work at the seventh grade level, continual evaluation of students' progress throughout the junior high grades, increased guidance and counseling staff, and a third curriculum choice at the tenth grade level, in addition to college preparation and vocational education. It was proposed that students with less than high school capabilities enter a two-year intensive work-experience training program in preparation for vocational opportunities which do not require high school graduation for employment. Test results, questionnaires, and rating forms used in the study are included as appendices. (JH)
