ADOLESCENT CAREER ORIENTATIONS--SOME SUPPORTIVE AND CONFLICTING DATA.
REHBERG, RICHARD A.
THE EDUCATIONAL AND CAREER ORIENTATIONS OF 2,852 SECONDARY-SCHOOL SOPHOMORE MALES IN BOTH PUBLIC AND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS WERE SURVEYED BY A QUESTIONNAIRE. THE STUDY SOUGHT TO ASSESS THE RELATIONSHIPS OF SOCIAL STATUS TO TWO ALTERNATE DIMENSIONS OF CHOICE OF EDUCATIONAL AND CAREER GOALS, THE IDEALISTIC AND THE REALISTIC. THE INVESTIGATOR CONCLUDED FROM THE GATHERED DATA THAT BOTH DIMENSIONS OF BOTH EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL ORIENTATIONS VARY SIGNIFICANTLY AND POSITIVELY WITH SOCIAL STATUS, AND THERE IS A SLIGHTLY STRONGER ASSOCIATION BETWEEN STATUS AND THE REALISTIC DIMENSION THAN BETWEEN STATUS AND THE IDEALISTIC DIMENSION. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY WERE COMPARED TO THE RESULTS OF PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED REPORTS. THE COMPARISON SHOWED THAT WHILE MOST PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE FOUND SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE VARIATIONS OF THE REALISTIC DIMENSION WITH STATUS FOR BOTH CAREER AND EDUCATIONAL GOALS, IN OTHER ASPECTS THE PREVIOUS STUDIES ARE INCONSISTENT. A RELATED REPORT IS AA 000 010. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE MIDWESTERN SOCIOLOGICAL SOCIETY ANNUAL MEETING, APRIL 21-23, 1966. (AL)
