National Project II. Alternatives to the Revolving Door: Effective Learning for Low-Achieving Students. FY 1975. Program Information and Application Procedures.
Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The generation now beginning their postsecondary education includes a significant portion of students who lack abilities assumed for college students in the past. The Pattern for many of these students has been one of a revolving door: they enter college and leave within a year, without fulfilling their educational goals. For such students, access to further education does not guarantee a fair chance of reaping the traditional benefits of that experience. Thus, postsecondary institutions now face a broader social purpose. They must create the conditions for effective learning for a more diverse range of postsecondary students. Under the national projects competition, the fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education describes projects of national significance, and invites applicants to qualify for participation in a collaborative activity. This document sets forth guidelines for the second national project: "Alternatives to the Revolving Door; Effective Learning for Low-Achieving Students." (Author/KE)
