An Investigation to Identify, Describe and Evaluate an Optimal Program of Student Personnel Services for Student from Disadvantaged Background.
Walz, Garry R.; And Others
The intent of this report was to run a literature search to determine what had been learned about student services for the disadvantaged. The basic approach used for this study was one of designing a study that would experimentally obtain data on how disadvantaged students used and responded to selected student services. It was thought that data obtained in this manner would more directly relate to the interests of the Office of Education and student personnel workers. In the end, a series of generalizations were developed which could help individuals in a wide range of settings and positions. These generalizations included the following: 1) Discussion of the types of research approaches to be used; 2) Reconceptualization of the focus of disadvantaged research; 3) Strategies for the elimination of "Disadvantagedness"; 4) Implications for the student personnel worker.
