The purpose of the research reported here was: (1) to discover all the skills a Valley student must have and the knowledges he must possess to succeed in his present home and community situations, (2) to discover the present capabilities of Valley students to perform these skills and exhibit these knowledges, and (3) to compare the expectations with the capabilities to determine the needs of Valley students.
