Discovering and Developing the College Potential of Disadvantaged High School Youth. A Report of the Sixth Year of a Longitudinal Study on the College Discovery and Development Program. Report No. 72-6.
Brody, Lawrence; Schenker, Hank
This report is the sixth in a series of longitudinal studies describing the College Discovery and Development Program aimed at identifying disadvantaged and under achieving ninth graders and developing their college potential in five special high school development centers. The sixth year brought the completion of the discovery and development cycle for the first of its students, those who had completed their studies with associate degrees, and the mid-college point for the first baccalaureate students. Various sections include descriptions of the sixth year of the program, personnel, facilities, the sixth population of students, attendance and achievement for all classes in 1970-71, college progress for classes I-III, high school graduation and admission to college for class IV, and a summary. Class VI resembled the previous five on all variables except for a lower income. The general findings for program students whose college records can be studied show a pattern of progress not greatly different from that of nonprogram classmates in each college. A number of newly stated specifically expressed behavioral objectives were added to the proposal for funding for the sixth year. (Author/AM)
