LONGITUDINAL TYPE CAREER INFORMATION WAS GATHERED IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES--(1) BACKGROUND AND PERSONAL INFORMATION, (2) CAREER CHOICE AND EDUCATIONAL HISTORY, (3) EMPLOYMENT HISTORY, (4) WORK VALUES, (5) TEACHING SATISFACTION, (6) REASONS FOR LEAVING TEACHING, (7) ATTITUDES TOWARD RE-ENTERING VOCATIONAL TEACHING, AND (8) SOCIAL MOBILITY. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED BY 88 PERCENT WHICH RESULTED IN 205 CAREERS OF FORMER VOCATIONAL TEACHERS BEING ANALYZED FOR THE STUDY. ANALYSES INCLUDED USE OF THE CHI-SQUARE, KRUSKAL-WALLIS ONE-WAY ANALYSIS MODEL, SPEARMAN RANK CORRELATION COEFFICIENT, MILLER-FORM CAREER PATTERN PARADIGM, AND DESCRIPTIVE CAREER PATTERNS.
