Legitimizing Education for Individual Life Styles: School of Survival. Final Evaluation Report 1974-75.
The purpose of the School of Survival (S.O.S.) is to provide an alternative educational program for 9th, 10th and 11th grade students from North Community High School whose life styles are not compatible with formal/traditional educational programs. There were six major goals for the project for 1974-75. These dealt with student participation in the educational activities of the project, students' attitudes toward school and teachers, reading, computation, work experiences, and improvement in the ability of the staff to prepare goals and objectives. A variety of activities including courses, field trips, and independent study projects were used to help the students reach the objectives. The staff were assisted by pre-service and in-service training sessions. The evaluation involved pre and posttesting in reading staff and employees, a review of the attendance records and credits earned by students, saff and employees, a review of the attendance records and credits earned by students, and a summary evaluation of each student by the project staff. The general conclusion is that the project as a whole continues to be successful. Objectives concerning attendance, credits earned, and student attitudes were not successfully accomplished in 1974-75, however, and it was impossible to determine the success of the mathematics program.
