Educational Plans and Their Fulfillment: A Study of Selected High School Students in Manitoba.
Siemens, Leonard B.; Jackson, J.E. Winston
One of a series of studies based on data collected from 1,844 high school students in Canada, this study examined twelfth graders who indicated plans for some post high school training. The study focused on the educational plans of 541 rural and suburban students and the sociological factors relating to the realization of these plans the following year. Factors considered were area of residence, size of community, average high school marks, I.Q., socio-economic status, and religious and ethnic origin. A follow-up on the initial data collection was made a year later to determine if plans were fulfilled. Statistical analysis of data revealed that 4 major factors influenced whether or not a student fulfilled his educational plans. These factors were (1) the student's innate ability, (2) financing of an extended period of training, (3) student motivation, and (4) social acceptance of such training by elders and peers. Fourteen major findings are included in this report. Related documents are RC 003 186, RC 003 187, and RC 003 293. (SW)
