A Title ESEA Case Study: The Liaison Teacher-Returnee Counselor Project.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
A counseling program for delinquent teenagers was developed in 1969-70 to serve four public high schools in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Liaison Teacher-Returnee Counselor Project was designed to provide continuous support to delinquent juveniles after their release from state institutions. Former teachers from the institutions and special counselors in the Milwaukee public schools helped to bridge the teenagers readjustment to the regular school system. The three main components of the project included prerelease activities, programming and orientation after release, and continued supportive counseling. In 1970-71, the project was expanded to include a summer program. Chapters of this case study concern general information, program planning, program management, implementation of the program, budget, and program evaluation. Results of the program indicated the recidivism rate for returnees in the project decreased each year, the number of days survived at school increased, and attendance improved. A subjective evaluation is included. (MJM)
