ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the cost and benefits of training educable students by taking into account the Kansas Work Study Project. The purpose of the study is to suggests that projects which have the employability or earnings potential of students as their major objective should consider the economic costs and benefits involved in such projects. It can be inferred from the results presented that the project was a success if income differentials between experimental and comparison groups continue for a period of only three to five years. These returns should be considered respectable in both the private and public sector.
