American's Problem Youth: Education and Guidance of the Disadvantaged.
Mink, Oscar G., Ed.; Kaplan, Bernard A., Ed.
This book is the result of a series of workshops designed for school personnel desiring to improve educational programs for disadvantaged youth and potential dropouts. The workshops were conducted at Cornell University during the summer of 1964 through 1967. The chapters in this book on milieu, basic issues, dropout problems, counseling the disadvantaged, and action projects represent, in part, papers presented during the Cornell workshops. The problems discussed are generally concerned with disadvantaged youth in urban areas. This book is intended to be a basic text on education and guidance of the disadvantaged; it is also directed to public school educators at all levels and all varieties of assignment. (Author/JW)
