Page 1B By KEITH WARD Staff Writer In that it is up to me to control my life I will strive to be better I will strive to set positive goals for my life I will strive to make school a priority I am some body but I will strive to be better This credo printed on special cards that students at Freedman Central School must carry with them at all times is what the institution is all about According to recent studies between 28 percent and 38 percent of South Caroli nas students drop out of school between 9th and 12th grades These dropouts are twice as likely to be unemployed as high school graduates They also generally hold the lowestpaying positions and re search further shows that they are more likely to receive wel fare and become crim The old traditional lecture techniques wouldnt work here Richard G Summey lifestyle on to their children Diversified Educational Experiences Program funded chiefly from federal money aims to prevent that dis turbing scenario from materializing Our goal is to get the kids interested in school so that they finish their education and become productive members of soci ety said Richard G Summey Freed mans principal The students enrolled at the school are classified as atrisk for dropping out Atrisk youths are generally those that are having trouble in their public schools for a variety of reasons These problems can be academic emotional or behavioral There are warning signals as to which kids are likely candidates to drop out For instance they are often two or more grade levels behind in reading have re peated several grades have serious at tendance problems and have been sus pended multiple times from school These signals can be observed as early as the third grade said Alan George of the Aiken Rotary an organization which strongly supports the school The public school system can be very pressurized George continued and Freedman puts them in a different envi ronment which will hopefully get them Please See FREEDMAN Page
