Occupation Analysis as a Basis for Vocational Education Curriculum Change.
Beima, James R., Comp.
The objectives of the survey were to identify the types of employment available for each population area in Alaska and to determine the occupational goals of high school students in the state, in order to provide a basis for evaluation of vocational education curricula. Of 15,308 high school students enrolled the first week of the 1966-67 school year, 14,581 students reported their father's occupation, mother's occupation, and their own vocational goal. Findings were: (1) 91 percent of the students' parents were employed in non-professional occupations, but only 25 percent of the students were receiving non-professional training to fill these existing jobs, (2) 75 percent of the students were receiving pre-college training required to fill 9 percent of the jobs, (3) 6,639 students reported their parents employed in areas utilizing skills learned in trade and industrial education, but only 2.8 percent of the students were receiving training in this area, (4) 5,099 students reported their mothers as full-time homemakers, and (5) 4,460 students reported their parents employed in areas related to business . The father's occupation, mother's occupation, and the student's vocational goal are tabulated. (PS)
