An Evaluation of the High School Redirection Program. State Urban Education Program.
New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
The High School Redirection Program was designed to maintain 240 potential dropouts in an educational-vocational setting while assisting them to progress toward a high school diploma. Students were admitted from 13 high schools in Brooklyn and from Andrew Jackson in Queens. They were to follow a work-study program through the summer and regular academic year combining selected classes for academic credit and paid work experience in alternate weeks. After five months of intensive research, the following findings required by the Evaluation Design were reported: (1) it is apparent that the overall program objective seeking to redirect dropouts and potential dropouts toward meaningful educational and vocational goals is being achieved; (2) academic achievement goals measured by the successful completion of courses as established in the original proposal are being met; (3) attendance achievement goals established in the original proposal are being met; (4) specific remedial reading and mathematics goals determined by standardized tests as established in the original proposal are bing met; (5) academic achievement goals measured by teacher-made tests as established in the original proposal are being met; and, (6) vocational (work experience) goals established in the original proposal are being met.
