What Vocational Education Teachers Should Know About Disadvantaged Youth In Rural Areas.
Walker, Robert W.
Because of poor attitudes toward educational involvement and a lack of basic scholastic skills, some students do not succeed in the regular programs offered in the high schools. Intended to be an authoritative analysis of the literature in the field, this "state-of-the-art" paper should serve as a guideline for teachers concerned with the development of programs at the local level to meet the needs of students identified as academically disadvantaged. The paper focuses on rural academically disadvantaged students, the factors which contribute to their maladjustment, and their personal characteristics. Conclusions reveal that programs must be student-centered and designed to meet individual needs. Successful programs can be developed for students through the total involvement of the school staff and the community. Related documents are available as VT 013 374 (RIE, April 1972) and ED 057 181.
