Career Opportunities Program: A Progress Report on a Mid-Range Demonstration.
Profiles are drawn of the 13,477 participants (75 percent nonwhite) in the Career Opportunities Program (COP) in 1972 in terms of their jobs, education, training, and performance as students. The report touches on how the 132 demonstration programs have affected local education agencies in the areas of differentiated staffing and new career opportunities for professional staffs. A section describes ways in which criticisms of COP are met. The impact of COP on 272 institutions of higher education is also summarized and an assessment made, in testimonial form, of the effect of COP graduates on school children. A summary briefly lists qualitative results of the demonstration programs to date. (MDW)
