Development Project Cooperative Work-Study Program for Educationally Alienated Students, Phase I Project SET (Select Employment Trainee).
Pittsburgh Board of Public Education, PA.
This is the developmental segment of a three-phase research demonstration program that has designed special models in counseling, curriculum, and media for use by 50 students identified as grossly alienated from the educational process and most aspects of personal adjustment and community life. As the student achieves in both academic classes and in an industrial training position, three options will be developed for his consideration: (1) The individual will return to school as a full-time student, either quitting his job or working only part time, (2) The student will retain his job and participate in General Education Development (GED) classes for a diploma, and (3) The student will eventually return to complete his high school training, but for the present will continue his employment. The program postulates that through intensive, supportive, and adaptive personal counseling, use of relevant curriculum, and economic satisfaction derived from paid on-the-job training, the student will be recycled into mainstream education. In Phase II implementation, the pilot program will become operational. (Author/GEB)
