Summary

Included in the report of Project MODEL's final year of operation as a Federally-funded educational project is a brief description of the project and an examination of its various operational activities. The project was originally designed to test the effectiveness of a specialized form of instruction for specific groups (physically and mentally handicapped, the incarcerated, ethnic minorities, and other socioeconomically disadvantaged) and to demonstrate their instruction to agencies which serve these groups. To deliver these programs of entry-level skill training or vocational assessment and orientation, four mobile units dealing in business education, distributive education, small engine repair/auto tune-up, and vocational evaluation were utilized. An outline of the project's 10 major objectives and their status and disposition are presented. A third party evaluation was conducted to assess the productivity and effectiveness of the project in reaching and dealing with five distinct groups: corrections, retarded, handicapped, disadvantaged, and racial and ethnic minorities. The evaluation was uniformly quite favorable. A rationale for the continuation of the project's concepts and operation as a private non-profit organization are presented. Tables and charts supplement the discussion on the project's operations and activities. (Author/EC)
