ABSTRACT
This article evaluates the introduction of work-experience program into the school program in the U.S. Several students liked talking about the work phase of the program, for this was one class activity about which they knew more than the teachers. Moreover, the local daily provided a class set which students read and labeled for various types of news. One aid for this program was a personal-problem test, which revealed evidence of problems that any student might have: divided homes, family conflicts, lack of money, boy-girl relationships, and religious questions.
