SOURCE DATA ON PERCEPTIONS OF PARENTS AND CHILDREN REGARDING CAREER PLANNING. PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH PROGRAMS IN SELECTED AREAS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, VOLUME II.
NORRIS, ELEANOR L.; SHERMAN, VIVIAN S.
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
