An Assessment of the Comprehensive High Schools in Georgia. Final Report.
Daniels, Michael R.; Allan, Richard G.
The purpose of this study was to assess the procedures and performances of comprehensive high schools in Georgia and to gather data for guiding future programs. The 112 comprehensive high schools in Georgia offer a combination of vocational and traditional academic programs. This report focuses on the input, process, and output of the comprehensive school system. Questionnaires were distributed and interviews conducted with principals, faculty, and students in vocational programs. Highlights of the findings showed that a majority of the students intend to pursue postsecondary training; vocational instructors have the most influence on students' selection of programs, jobs, and postsecondary training; graduates feel vocational programs prepare them slightly better than academic programs; and employers favor graduates of comprehensive high schools over those from strictly academic high schools. Recommendations are offered for guiding the future development of the comprehensive high school system in Georgia. (Author/LD)
