University Research Inst. of Connecticut, Inc., Wallingford.
A 5- and 10-year follow-up study of vocational-technical school graduates was conducted to obtain and analyze graduate data that could assist planning toward improvement of the state vocational-technical schools. Data concerning school and employment were collected by questionnaire from 974 graduates: 364 from the class of 1958 and 610 from the class of 1963. The format and detail of the data analysis were based on the first 400 responses. Of the 1963 graduates who responded to the questionnaires, 78 percent were in related employment, only 1.3 percent were unemployed, the average salary was $3.53, 40 had received advance degrees, and 129 were in apprenticeship programs. Data is presented in tabular form. A summary report is available as VT 008 792. (CH)
