OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATIONS OF SELECTED APPALACHIAN YOUTH.
STEVIC, RICHARD; UHLIG, GEORGE
THIS STUDY EXAMINES THE OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATIONS OF APPALACHIAN YOUTH. IT COMPARES AND CONTRASTS THESE STUDENTS WITH NATIVE AND APPALACHIAN MIGRANT STUDIES IN A RURBAN AREA OF AN OHIO CITY. THE COMPARISON INDICATES--(1) APPALACHIAN YOUTH WHO STAY IN THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA HAVE A SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER ASPIRATIONAL LEVEL THAN DO THOSE STUDENTS WHO ARE NATIVE TO AN URBAN AREA, (2) THE APPALACHIAN YOUTH HAVE DIFFERENT ROLE MODELS AND CHARACTERISTICS FOR SUCCESS THAN THOSE STUDENTS WHO HAVE MIGRATED FROM THE APPALACHIAN AREA, AND (3) ONE OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS IN RAISING THE OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATIONS OF APPALACHIAN STUDENTS APPEARS TO BE LACK OF INFORMATION AND OPPORTUNITY RATHER THAN LACK OF ABILITY. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE JOURNAL, JANUARY, 1967. (SF)
