MIGRATION--ITS IMPLICATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN A RURAL AREA.
JOHNSON, RONALD L.; KIEFERT, JAMES J.
MIGRATION IS DEFINED AS THE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE FROM ONE LOCALITY TO ANOTHER. IT WAS A BASIC FACTOR IN NORTH DAKOTA'S POPULATION CHANGE BETWEEN 1950 AND 1960. ALTHOUGH THE STATE EXPERIENCED 117,600 MORE BIRTHS THAN DEATHS, THE INCREASE IN POPULATION AMOUNTED TO ONLY 12,600 DUE TO AN OUT OF STATE MIGRATION OF 105,000 PERSONS. THE GREATEST POPULATION LOSS RESULTED IN THE RURAL AREAS. SINCE RURAL MIGRANTS TEND TO HAVE LESS SUCCESSFUL OCCUPATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT THAN THEIR URBAN COUNTERPARTS, THE NECESSITY OF VOCATIONAL TRAINING IS SUGGESTED FOR COPING WITH THE PROBLEM. COMPLETE MIGRATION DATA ARE NECESSARY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A VOCATIONAL CURRICULUM IN NORTH DAKOTA. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION RECORD, VOL. 51 NO. 9, JUNE, 1966. (ES)
