A Theoretical and Empirical Analysis of Vocational Preparation in Japan. Volume I, Learning, Working and Earning: Preview and Review. Final Report.
Bowman, Mary Jean; And Others
This report presents detailed procedures and findings of research on Japanese high school seniors, their choice of courses, educational and career expectations and preferences, and the extent to which these attitudes conform to relationships in Japanese labor markets. Data came from a 1966 survey of 7,000 male high school seniors enrolled in general, commerce, agricultural, and technical curriculums, with supplementary data from the students' fathers. This first volume of the five-volume report includes an overview of the entire study and an introductory chapter. Japan was chosen for this study because of the exceptional data coverage and reliability, and the notable similarities and contrast with the United States in relevant educational matters. In this volume a generalized sequential human-investment and career decision model is presented, which permits the inclusion of both monetary and non-monetary factors. The five volumes are available as VT 013 653-013 657. (BH)
