HOW HIGH SCHOOL COOPERATIVE TRAINEES FARE IN THE LABOR MARKET. PHASE C, A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF 1964 GRADUATES TEN MONTHS AFTER GRADUATION.
HAINES, PETER G.; OZZELLO, LAWRENCE M.
THE 1964 GRADUATES OF MICHIGAN HIGH SCHOOLS WHO HAD BEEN COOPERATIVE TRAINEES WERE SURVEYED 10 MONTHS AFTER GRADUATION. THE HIGH SCHOOL COORDINATORS SUPPLIED ADDRESSES AND CLASS RANK OF THE 5,420 TRAINEES. EACH TRAINEE RECEIVED A QUESTIONNAIRE AND, IF NECESSARY, A FOLLOW-UP LETTER AND DUPLICATE QUESTIONNAIRE WITHIN 2 WEEKS. USABLE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED BY 2,957 PEOPLE (55 PERCENT). FINDINGS WERE -- (1) APPROXIMATELY 1 PERCENT WERE UNEMPLOYED, (2) ALMOST 40 PERCENT WERE CONTINUING THEIR EDUCATION, (3) MORE THAN HALF WERE EMPLOYED IN THE FIELD FOR WHICH THEY WERE TRAINED, (4) 27 PERCENT WERE STILL EMPLOYED BY THEIR COOPERATIVE FIRM, AND (5) THEIR AVERAGE RANK WAS SLIGHTLY SUPERIOR TO THE AVERAGE RANK OF THEIR GRADUATING CLASS. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED -- (1) A CONTINUING INVENTORY OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF COOPERATIVE EDUCATION, (2) BETTER PROVISIONS FOR REPORTING OF INFORMATION BY LOCAL SCHOOLS, AND (3) THE SCRUTINY OF LOCAL PROGRAMS TO DETERMINE WHETHER STUDENT PLACEMENTS REFLECTED THE STUDENT'S OCCUPATIONAL GOAL AND HIS OCCUPATIONAL INSTRUCTION.
