With the number of drop-outs on the increase, the federal, state and local agencies, as well as private industry, have become involved with methods of student retention. The Vocational Amendments of 1968 have given impetus to work-study programs of various types for the possible retention of these students.
The null hypothesis of this study was that the work-study programs examined do not change the characteristics of the potential drop-out which were used to identify him as a potential drop-out.
The study took place at North Babylon, New York. There a general work-study program known as the School to Employment Program and two cooperative programs, the Industrial Cooperative Program and Distributive Education Program were selected and examined. A control group of students having some of the characteristics of the potential drop-out was selected.
