Abstract

Students in society today not only have their own personal or academic barriers to overcome, but also have those placed upon them by many outside sources. Determining those sources, how to deal with them and putting programs into action, are the first steps to helping the rising numbers of at-risk youth (Ames, Gillespie, & Streff, 1972). As educators continue to refine the curricula, management structure and teaching methods, consideration must be given to the changes occurring in the family structure so that the child, does not suffer (Lepley, 1989). Dramatic changes have taken place in the so called •traditional family,• causing it to become more and more of a rarity. Many personal and societal problems are contributing factors in the recent upswing of the at-risk youth (Morley, 1988).
