Occupational Status Projections of Mexican American Youth Residing in the Rio Grande Valley.
Wright, David E., Jr.; Kuvlesky, William P.
Information obtained from Mexican American students in a 1967 study of high school sophomores in 4 Texas counties was analyzed empirically relating to occupational goals and expectations. It was concluded that: (1) large proportions of the Mexican American youth studied desired high-level occupations; (2) little difference existed between the level of occupational aspirations and expectations of males and females; (3) occupational expectations of Mexican American youth were high, although lower than their aspirations; and (4) the majority were not very certain of their expectations.
