OCCUPATIONS OF SOUTH CAROLINA'S VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS COMPLETING A PRESCRIBED COURSE, 1959-63.
RODGERS, JOHN H.
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE OCCUPATIONAL STATUS OF STUDENTS WITH AT LEAST 2 YEARS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE WHO GRADUATED OR LEFT SCHOOL DURING 1959-63. DATA ON 21,148 FORMER STUDENTS WERE COLLECTED BY QUESTIONNAIRES FROM NEARLY ALL OF THE VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS IN THE STATE. IT WAS FOUND THAT, OF THOSE AVAILABLE FOR EMPLOYMENT, OVER 57 PERCENT HELD AGRICULTURAL JOBS, AND LESS THAN 43 PERCENT WERE IN NONAGRICULTURAL JOBS. OF THOSE EMPLOYED IN NON-FARM OCCUPATIONS, 2,325 WERE IDENTIFIED AS HAVING BENEFITED FROM VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE. OVER 13 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE GROUP WERE IN THE ARMED FORCES, 7 PERCENT WERE ATTENDING COLLEGES, AND 9 PERCENT WERE UNKNOWN, DECEASED, OR UNEMPLOYED. OVER 40 PERCENT OF THOSE IN THE ARMED FORCES WERE IN FARMING PRIOR TO INDUCTION. (JM)
