Santa Clara County Day Care Center. First Year Evaluation.
American Justice Inst., Sacramento, CA.
The youths attended the center during the day for school and individual or group counseling, while continuing to live at home. Objectives of the program were to increase academic achievement, improve attitude and motivation toward education, decrease post-center truancy and recidivism, and improve the self-esteem of the individual. A group of 62 experimental and 43 control youth provides the base for analysis. In the first year of operation, cost, in terms of monthly expenditure per child, is the major negative aspect. Suggestions are given to solve this problem. The authors also suggest modifications in the program for the third year of operation. (Author)
