A Survey of Junior and Senior High School Programs for Educable Mentally Handicapped Students.
Singer, Steven; And Others
Presented are the results of a survey of secondary school programs for educable mentally handicapped (EMH) students, representing the completion of stage 2 of the community level of the Social Learning Curriculum--the Problem-Oriented Social-Vocational Adaptation Program. Among the findings presented are the following: 1) very few programs programs combine academic, social, and vocational curricula, and there is a shift toward a stronger vocational emphasis at the senior high level; 3) the self-contained classroom was identified by the largest proportion of the sample as the typical educational setting of the program; and 4) the availability of resources that are apt to lead to the development of marketable skills are reported by a relatively small proportion of the sample. Implications discussed include the fact that EMH students may not be benefiting from high school facilities. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. (DLS)
