Career College: Second Annual Report.

Career College (originally known as Cooperative Education Program for Dropouts) was set up under Title I of the Higher Education Act. The objectives of this program focused on familiarizing the individual with the college environment, fostering independence in program participants, and creating a desire in participants to continue their education beyond the programs conducted by Miami-Dade Junior College. This, the Second Annual Career College Report, analyzes activities and programs in which 82 high school dropouts participated. Several of the remedial courses taught in this program are outlined and evaluated. Programs such as Upward Bound, the Guthrie Job Corps, and the Illinois Curriculum Teaching Social Studies, designed to help students from low-income families acquire a college education, are evaluated. Seminars and conferences on various aspects of education are also discussed and analyzed. Student scores on the Kuder Occupational Interest Survey are presented in tabular form and analyzed. Surveys and questionnaires used to elicit both student and teacher opinion on certain aspects of the Career College are included in the appendices. See ERIC document ED 038 119 for a report of the first year operation of Career College. [Because of marginal reproducibility of original, this document is not available in hard copy.] (RC)
