Second-Chance Programs for Youth

by Frederick Doolittle - 1995

In this chapter I review key studies of second-chance education, training, and employment programs for economically disadvantaged youth who lack a high school diploma or a general equivalency diploma (GED).

Following a review of the research record, several policy implications of these findings are discussed.
