Educational and Vocational Goals of Rural Youth in North Carolina, Technical Bulletin No. 163.
Sperry, Irwin V.; Kivett, Vira R.
The purposes of this study were (1) to describe similarities and differences in educational goals of rural youth and of their parents for them, and (2) to determine the relationships of the similarities and differences to such factors as membership or non-membership in clubs, sex, leve l of living, residence, size of family, state, and area. The sample consisted of 281 youths selected at random from the population characterized as rural 9th and 10th grade students of county school systems having youth clubs and not being located within the corporate limits of cities with 50,000 or more population. Findings are discussed under the broad categories of educational attitudes and vocational preferences and educational and vocational plans. A general conclusion was that the level of living seemed to be an important factor differentiating the educational and vocational goal of rural youth. (CH)
