Project MAS--'Que esta pasando?'
Speed, W. Kelley
NEATE Leaflet, v71 n1 p31-7 February 1972
Project MAS (taken from the Spanish, meaning "more") was designed to offer MORE alternatives to students. The program, developed for the Hartford Public High School (HPHS), Connecticut, is intended not only to reduce the phenomenon known as "dropping out" (a student centered problem) but also to reduce the phenomenon known as "pushing out" (a school centered problem). The program's background, development, objectives for the next five years, and evaluation are discussed. Three major components of the project are: Staff Development; Instruction; and Supportive Services. The problems of HPHS epitomize those of urban America. Social, economic, and educational problems are common to almost every urban community. The Project attempts to discover strategies that will identify the problems, the factors involved, and prescribe actions that will lead to solutions. (Author/LS)
