Evaluation of the Troy Special Education Project, 1971-72.
A report to describe the status of a special education program is presented. The program provides special instruction and services for students in the six schools of Troy, Alabama. Participating students receive instruction in home economics and shop and take part in a sheltered job program. The thesis of the program was that all children have potentialities for becoming contributing members of society and that it was a primary function of education to help them realize these potentials. There were eight special education classes in the Troy City System - two on the primary level, two intermediate, two junior high and two senior high classes. Objectives involved the training of local area teachers, use of local facilities, and development of an innovative approach in a Special Education Program. Students needs were fulfilled through counseling, placement, testing, orientation, and inservice education for staff members. Results and a case history are presented. (CK)
