DETERMINING KINDS OF GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT IN WHICH FORMER HOMEMAKING STUDENTS FROM ARKANSAS SECONDARY SCHOOLS ENGAGE, AND WHAT KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS HOMEMAKING CURRICULUMS MAY CONTRIBUTE TO THESE GAINFUL OCCUPATIONS.
ROBERTS, ROY W.
THE VOCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE HOMEMAKER-WAGE EARNER AND WHAT CONTRIBUTION THE HIGH SCHOOL HOME ECONOMICS CURRICULUM MAY MAKE TO VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FOR GAINFUL OCCUPATIONS IN WHICH THE YOUNG WOMEN WILL BE EMPLOYED AFTER HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION WERE THE GOALS OF THIS STUDY. THE DATA OF THE STUDY WERE OBTAINED FROM (1) QUESTIONNAIRES TO FORMER HOMEMAKING STUDENTS, (2) LETTERS TO EMPLOYERS OF THESE STUDENTS, (3) INFORMATION FROM SCHOOL RECORDS, (4) JOB DESCRIPTIONS AND ANALYSES, AND (5) OPINIONS OF QUALIFIED CONSULTANTS. THE DATA SUGGEST THAT PRESENT-DAY HOME ECONOMICS COURSES MAY BE ENRICHED TO INCLUDE MANY COMPETENCIES NEEDED BY YOUNG WOMEN WHO ENTER GAINFUL OCCUPATIONS WITHOUT REDUCING THE VALUE OF THE CONTENT FOR HOMEMAKERS. THE STUDY SUGGESTS A NEED FOR SPECIAL COURSES IN SOME ASPECTS OF HOME ECONOMICS FOR YOUNG WOMEN WHO EXPECT TO ENTER THE LABOR FORCE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. (GD)
