WINEFORDNER, DAVID
A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ADMINISTERED TO ALL TENTH AND ELEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS IN 142 SCHOOLS (44,429 STUDENTS) FOR THE 1964-65 SURVEY. THE PURPOSE OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS TO OBTAIN AN ESTIMATE OF (1) STUDENTS' PLANS FOR EMPLOYMENT OR FURTHER SCHOOLING AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, (2) VOCATIONS WHICH STUDENTS THINK THEY MIGHT LIKE TO ENTER, AND (3) THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO WOULD HAVE DESIRED SPECIFIC VOCATIONAL COURSES HAD THEY BEEN OFFERED AS PART OF THEIR HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM. SOME FINDINGS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE WERE--(1) 32,257 STUDENTS (72.6 PERCENT) DESIRED HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, (2) 20,262 (45.6 PERCENT) PLANNED TO ATTEND COLLEGE, (3) 16,642 (37.5 PERCENT) INDICATED PLANS FOR FURTHER EDUCATION OR TRAINING AFTER HIGH SCHOOL OTHER THAN COLLEGE, AND (4) 5,809 (13.1 PERCENT) INDICATED A DESIRE FOR HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND HAD NO PLANS TO ATTEND COLLEGE OR GET FURTHER EDUCATION AFTER HIGH SCHOOL. STUDENTS WERE ASKED TO MAKE FIRST AND SECOND CHOICE SELECTIONS FOR VOCATIONAL COURSES THEY FELT WOULD MEET THEIR EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL NEEDS. THE COURSE SELECTIONS ARE LISTED WITH NUMBERS AND PERCENTAGES. A SEPARATE SHEET WAS INCLUDED IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE FOR HOME ECONOMICS. A TOTAL OF 21,514 GIRLS COMPLETED THE QUESTIONNAIRE, AND A SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS IS INCLUDED. (PS)
