Career Study Center: A Formative Evaluation.
Center for New Schools, Inc., Chicago, IL.
An evaluative study was made for the staff and students at Career Study Center (CSC) to provide them with information for the program's future development. Staff, students, and parents were randomly selected and interviewed and the results summarized. Students feel CSC is significantly different and better than previously attended schools; there is more freedom and closer relationships with teachers; their basic skills, attendance, and understanding are improving. The teachers assess their CSC responsibilities as first relating closely with students, then helping them become independent. They disagree on how flexible behavior limits should be. Parents describe their children's previous school difficulties and report positive changes since attending CSC although they know little about the program. The three appendixes include student, teacher, and parent interview questions and responses. (MS)
