Some Rural-Urban Differences Between Manitoba High School Students.
Siemens, Leonard; Driedger, Leo
One of a series of studies based on data collected from 1,844 eleventh and twelfth grade Canadian students, this study examined to what extent type of residence was an important factor in student aspirations and other social factors. Farm, rural non-farm, and suburban youth were compared in order to study their degree of exposure to a variety of social experiences and their motivation. It was hypothesized that (1) the more urban the youth the greater their exposure to a diversity of social experiences, (2) the more urban the youth the higher their motivations, and (3) the greater the exposure to a diversity of social experiences the higher the motivations. Statistical analysis of data collected by means of questionnaires indicated that the first 2 hypotheses could be accepted. The data did not permit the testing of the third hypothesis. Statistical data and tables illustrate the findings. Related documents are RC 003 187, RC 003 188, and RC 003 293. (SW)
