A Model Program for Educationally Deprived Children. CPA School Seminar Paper.
Martin, John Henry
Recommended are a series of educational changes which would enhance the schooling of poor children in slum schools. (1) The most important factor requiring change is teacher expectation of slum children. (2) Primary school levels should be upgraded. (3) Specialists should be grouped into a diagnostic treatment team led by a reading specialist who is responsible for the classes of 10 to 15 teachers. Classroom teacher and specialist would cooperate to plan an individualized program for each child. (4) Educational supervision must shift from managerial functions to ones concerned with instructional process. (5) All junior and senior high school students of all income levels should have part-time jobs with exposure to a wide range of human services occupations. (6) Vocational education must be restructured so that youth are first employed and then educated in conjunction with the job. (NH)
