PROSHANSKY, HAROLD; SMITH, ROBERT
ATTITUDES AND COGNITIONS OF YOUNG PEOPLE ABOUT THE NATURE OF WORK WERE STUDIED TO DISCOVER THE INFLUENCE OF SEX, SOCIAL CLASS, RACE, AND INTELLIGENCE ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF WORK ORIENTATION. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 1,254 TEENAGERS FROM 13 PUBLIC SCHOOLS. OPEN ENDED QUESTIONNAIRES, RATING SCALES, HIGH SCHOOL RECORDS, AND TEAHCER RATINGS PROVIDED STUDY DATA. TO GET A COMPARATIVE MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS OF THE FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH DIFFERENT PATTERNS OF STATUS CONGRUENCE, THE POPULATION OF TEENAGERS WAS DIVIDED INTO SUBPOPULATIONS OF--(1) HIGH CONGRUENT STATUS-MIDDLE CLASS, HIGH IQ, WHITE, (2) LOW CONGRUENT STATUS-LOWER CLASS, LOW IQ, NEGRO, (3) HIGH INCONGRUENT STATUS, AND (4) LOW INCONGRUENT STATUS. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE ABOUT THE MODIFICATION OF SCHOOL PROGRAMS, SCHOOL-PARENT AND TEACHER-STUDENT COMMUNICATION, AND THE ORGANIZATION OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES. SCHOOLS MUST ADAPT AND DIFFERENTIATE PROGRAMS OF EXPERIENCES FOR BOYS AS COMPARED TO GIRLS. THE ROLES OF TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, ADMINISTRATORS, PARENTS, AND THE COMMUNITY ARE DISCUSSED. THE DISCUSSION OF RESULTS IS ORGANIZED AS FOLLOWS--(1) ATTITUDES TOWARD FATHER'S WORK AND FATHER, (2) ASPIRTIONS ABOUT THE FUTURE AND THE EDUCATIONAL PATHWAY, (3) ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS IN THE SCHOOL SETTING, (4) PERCEPTIONS AND EVALUATIONS OF SELF, AND (5) WORK AND PLAY.
