Summary

As part of a far-reaching research project on educational needs of the rural disadvantaged, this phase of the Rural Education Disadvantaged Youth Project (Project REDY) dealt with the development and evaluation of a vocationally-oriented family-centered educational program. The model program, which was field-tested at a single site, focused upon: (1) youth and their career choices, (2) family financial management, and (3) improvement of family income. The research design employed was a pre- and posttest control group design with two control groups. Information was gathered by means of standardized instruments tested in a pilot study earlier in Project REDY, a Family Data Record, a School Data Record Form, and interview schedules. Conclusions regarding the sample were stated in terms of: (1) family residence, (2) farm business, (3) financial assistance, (4) race and nationality, and (5) geographic mobility. Conclusions concerning the program evaluation cover such points as: (1) community variables, (2) morale variables, (3) social class, (4) deprivation, (5) leisure time activities, and (6) parental desires for their children.
