Abstract

We have proceeded to analyze this problem with two basic assumptions. First, we assume that the courses of study as now offered in George Washington Carver High School do not meet the needs of the graduates and drop-outs who enrolled there. Some students have more difficulty making adjustments than others. Second, we assume that there is a need for vocational training in the George Washington Carver High School to meet the needs of those students who do not complete their high school training.

In the light of these assumptions this study proposes to answer the following questions: 1. What have become of the sixty graduates and ninety-two drop-outs enrolled in the George Washington Carver Hight School during the ten-year period 1931-1941 inclusive? 2. Do the courses of study as offered at the George Washington Carver High School meet the needs of the graduates and drop-outs?

To carry out the study, answers to the following more specific questions will be sought: 1. What have the former students of the George Washington Carver High School done towards furthering their education? 2. If they dropped out of school, what was the chief cause? 3. To what extent has their high school training served as a basis or foundation for later study? 4. To what extent has their high school experience fitted them to become successful citizens? 5. Where do they live and what is their marital and economic status? 6. What changes and additions do they suggest in order to improve the high school offerings?

Once these questions are answered, we are in a good position to make generalizations concerning the adequacy of the curriculum offerings of the George Washington Carver High School in meeting the needs of the students who enroll there.
