Investigation of the Relationships Between Migration Intent and Vocational and Educational Expectations of North Carolina Rural Youth.
Drabick, Lawrence W.
The study was designed to determine the relationship between a student's intention to migrate from his community of residence and his vocational and educational expectations. In rural North Carolina, 1068 senior students (Negroes and whites) in 23 high schools were interviewed. Variables examined included sex, socioeconomic status, intelligence, residence, and race. The general conclusion reached was that the social context within which socialization occurs tends to create attitudinal sets among students, resulting in expression of migration intents bearing direct relationships to vocational and educational expectations. The document is appended with 11 tables. (AN)
