Basic Education and E.S.L. Counseling in the Work Incentive Program. A Summary.
This report is an attempt to summarize some of the concerns and problems of the Work Incentive Program of Los Angeles. The educational counseling component of the program, Division of Adult Education, has as its major objective to maximize the opportunities of the WIN enrollee, who is encouraged to educationally advance himself vocationally and/or academically. Student questionnaires were distributed; a teacher survey was conducted; and statistical data on the classes were collected, in order to screen out the problems and concerns of this program. These were found to include the following: lack of student-teacher communication concerning vocational goals, lack of student motivation, varied abilities of students placed within the same classrooms, and personal and/or financial problems of students. The conclusion drawn from all the data collected is that the success of the program depends largely on the placement of students into vocational and on-the-job training programs, getting closer to job placement and off the welfare rolls.
