1. Cumbee, H. Wayne. A Follow-Up Study of Selected Participants in The Youth Development Program (Drop-Out Program) of The Jefferson County Kentucky School System.

Degree: Education Specialist, Department of Educational Administration, Leadership and Research, 1976, Western Kentucky University

Samples from four school year classes of students that participated in the youth Development Program, were interviewed in areas of family background, marital status, career status, educational status and interest in certain communication media. The data from the Interview Questionnaire was then collated. All participants had been classed as drop-outs or potential drop-outs. The school years involved were: 4969 through 1972-73. The results showed that fifty-six percent graduated the year they attended the program; twelve percent returned to regular school. Persisted and graduated; six percent went on to college and twenty-six percent received their graduation certificate or an equivalency (G.E.D.) certificate. A total of 94 percent of the participants graduated or went on to graduate. Also, 10.2 percent of the student’s parents had attended college; the report shows that drastic changes must be made in primary and secondary school curricula. Work-study type program are desperately needed, and, the ability to recognize or identify the potential school leaver at elementary levels is badly needed. Career oriented education is an important need. Advisors/Committee Members: Emmett D. Burkeen, DeWayne W. Mitchell, Robert Simpson.
