Cooperative Education Program. Concord-Carlisle Regional High School, Concord Massachusetts.
Curtin, Thomas G.; And Others
Cooperative Education at Concord-Carlisle High School is a plan of educational enrichment designed to enhance self-realization and direction by means of integrating classroom study with planned and supervised practical experience in educational, vocational, social service, or cultural learning situations outside of the formal classroom environment. This program has three parts: (1) employment in which students are placed in formal job situations for both pay and academic credit; (2) volunteer services in which students volunteer their services to the community; and (3) tutorial program in which students work with elementary school children. The faculty and administration of the school have been supportive and instrumental in its rapid growth. Students have assumed much of the responsibility for organizing and administering the program. The community has also given support to the idea. School buses provide transportation for students in the volunteer and tutorial programs. Comments by participating student and teacher are given to conclude this report. (KJ)
