Part-Time Entry Job Survey of Prairie Grove, Arkansas.
Maddox, Marion E.; And Others
In June 1969, some 61 businessmen of Prairie Grove, Arkansas, were personally interviewed to determine the feasibility of establishing a standard supervised cooperative part-time education program for the students of the area. Thirty-six beginning jobs were available, with nearly half being in distributive occupations. The remaining openings were in 5 occupational categories: office, industry, general work, agriculture, and occupational home economics. A majority of would-be employers expressed an interest in participating in a cooperative program. An appendix to the document includes news releases about the program, a copy of the questionnaires used, and other materials pertinent to this exploratory study. (BD)
