Cross, Tracy; And Others
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v13 n1 p83-94 Spr 1990
Eighty-six "at-risk" students (aged 14-16) participated in an 8-week program of immersion in vocational training, academics, counseling, recreation, and performing arts. Students improved in academic areas and in their understanding of the world of work, but self-concept measures showed a decline and the program's impact on dropout likelihood was unclear. (JDD)
