Summary

The objective of this phase of the Rural Education Disadvantaged Youth Project (Project REDY) was to evaluate the model vocationally-oriented educational program that was developed in an earlier phase of the research. This educational program focused upon (1) youth and career choices, (2) family financial management, and (3) improvement of family income. Based upon pre- and posttest data for a control group and an experimental group and upon data gathered from standardized instruments, interview schedules, and school records, results included information pertaining to: (1) family residence, (2) financial assistance, (3) characteristics of adults, (4) situation and goals of children, (5) parental desires for their children, (6) the home environment, and (7) leisure time activities. One major conclusion of the study was that a local school teacher can conduct an effective family-centered vocationally-oriented education program which will produce significant changes in the attitudes and situations of severely disadvantaged rural family members.
