Our Work-Study Product: Does It Stand Up?
Cloninger, Leonard
Attempted was an evaluation of work study programs for mentally retarded (MR) students through a followup of work study graduates, a survey of state departments of education, and a review of the literature. Inadequate return of a graduate rating scale, difficulty in obtaining student records, and few and inadequate answers to the state survey resulted in aborting the study. Past studies were surveyed with such findings as a higher success rate for MR graduates of work study programs than MR graduates of other secondary programs. Appended are the list of items used to rate graduates, a summary of studies reporting unemployment of the retarded, a chart of minimum wage rates from 1967 to 1978 (projected), a summary of studies reporting wages earned, a summary of the success percentage of MR graduates, and a chart of the percentage of employment from closure to followup.
