Vocational Students' Perception of Guidance Needs: A Study Conducted in Minnesota Area Vocational-Technical Schools. Minnesota Guidance Series.
Petry, Dorothy W.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to collect information on the guidance needs of students in vocational technical schools in Minnesota. The five areas of student concern in this study include housing, financial needs, information relating to school, social and recreational activities, and career plans. Data was obtained from a questionnaire designed to gather personal data, opinions concerning themselves, and those services considered to be important by the students. The results of this study indicate that student services supplementary to the instructional program are being offered in various ways. Some schools did assist some students in finding a place to live and helped others in finding part time employment. Students indicated that help in finding a job was perhaps the most important service which the school could perform. Students also indicated that someone at school had given them information about careers and job opportunities. (KJ)
