A Study to Identify Educational Needs of Non-College Bound Students in a Rural Public High School of Six Hundred Students. Final Report.
The primary objective of this study was to determine the educational needs of non-college bound rural high school students in the Quincy school district and to make the information available to the administration and board members of the district with general recommendations for curriculum change. The project consists of two separate parts: (1) study group of 15 certified staff members to seek answers to selected questions, and (2) an extensions course from Washington State University available to staff members of the entire school district. The study group conducted the research activities in the areas of: (1) past high school graduates, (2) community survey and lay committee, (3) curriculum development, and (4) resources and special problems. Well over half (56 persons) of the teachers in the school district were enrolled in the extension course and all grade levels were represented. The extension course was designed to help teachers and administrators gain an understanding of the basic principles of vocational education and to create an awareness of the responsibility of schools in preparing non-college bound young people for the world of work. General recommendations made by the study group to the administration and board members are included. (MM)
