ADOLESCENT CAREER PLANS AND THE IMPACT OF CHRONIC ECONOMIC DISTRESS UPON ADOLESCENT EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL EXPECTATIONS AND ASPIRATIONS.
REHBERG, RICHARD A.
THE EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL CAREER ORIENTATIONS OF YOUTH AND THE EFFECT OF ECONOMIC DISPARITIES ON THEIR CHOICES WERE STUDIED. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS CONSTRUCTED, VALIDATED, AND ADMINISTERED TO 3,047 SECONDARY SCHOOL SOPHOMORE MALES IN 6 THIRD-CLASS CITIES. ONE-HALF OF THE CITIES WERE ECONOMICALLY DISTRESSED AREAS. THE OTHER THREE WERE PROSPEROUS. THE COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES SHOWED 90-95 PERCENT WERE FILLED OUT CAREFULLY AND CONSCIENTIOUSLY. THE FINDINGS INDICATED THAT EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL CAREER ASPIRATIONS AND EXPECTATIONS OF ADOLESCENTS DID NOT VARY AT RANDOM, BUT VARIED AS A COMPLEX AND INADEQUATELY UNDERSTOOD FUNCTION OF A NUMBER OF VARIABLES. FUTURE RESEARCH WAS SUGGESTED USING LONGITUDINAL PANEL DESIGN WHICH WOULD FOLLOW A GIVEN SAMPLE FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE, AND THEN INTO THE ACTUAL OCCUPATIONAL WORLD.
