Agricultural Work Experience Programs for Academically Handicapped Youth in Secondary Schools.
Archer, Beverly Byrd
To investigate the relationship between enrollment in agricultural work experience programs and the social behavior, academic performance, and vocational preparation of academically handicapped youth, this investigation utilized a study group of 85 students in special agricultural work experience programs (AWE) and 74 students in regular vocational agriculture programs. The primary purpose of the AWE program is to use instruction in agriculture as a vehicle to stimulate students to achieve academically, as well as to prepare them for entry into agricultural related occupations. Results of this 2-year study indicated that the AWE students improved in citizenship and school attendance. Twenty-nine percent of the study group and 38 percent of the comparison group desired to continue education beyond high school. The two groups did not differ significantly on interest in occupational training and attitude toward work. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (GB)
