Neglected and Delinquent Pupils Project 1984-1985. Final Report.
Mei, Dolores; And Others
The Neglected and Delinquent Pupils Project provided pre-vocational, vocational and life skills training to 450 students in grades 9-12 who resided in two group homes or a correctional facility for the neglected or delinquent. The curriculum methodology and organization were determined by each institution based on the needs of the students, facilities, and schedule of participants. The objectives of the program stated that participants would achieve 75 percent of their assigned objectives. The results indicated that this objective was met at all sites. Based on the results of the evaluation, the following recommendations are made: (1) increase funds for the purchase of materials; (2) provide some type of inservice training, especially to new teachers; (3) give some consideration to setting minimum literacy levels for program participants or give special assistance to those students with minimal literacy; and (4) develop some type of job placement program that would serve as a follow-up to the educational program's focus on pre-vocational and vocational skills development.
