Bennett, Edward C.
The purpose of this study was to develop and test a counseling program designed to improve pupil self-esteem, thereby hopefully reducing the number of future school dropouts The program was conducted at Cooley Education and Vocational Guidance Center and served 87 pupils. The need for such a program was apparent when the high rate of secondary school dropouts was ascertained for this school district. Traditional statistical evaluatory procedures were applied to data collected in five major areas: "How I See Myself Scale," school conduct, school attendance, school achievement, and reading achievement. Criteria for transfer to this special program are questionable reading ability and poor school adjustment. The results show overall "N" growth in all areas. (Author)
