Evaluation of Home Visitations as a Part of Vocational Homemaking Education in Texas. Final Report.
A survey of useful homemaking teachers in the state of Texas was conducted to identify the status of home visitations as a part of vocational homemaking education. All useful homemaking teachers (2,501) were mailed questionnaires which addressed specific concerns related to home visitations. Seventeen research questions provided the framework for development of the survey instrument. The first question evaluated variables which might be related to the percentage of students visited during the regular school year. Other research questions were concerned with qualitative aspects of home visitation as a part of vocational homemaking education. Analysis of the questionnaires returned by seventy-two percent of the teachers revealed that useful homemaking teachers believe that home visitations are somewhat important and should continue to be a part of homemaking programs, although they are not satisfied with the current status of home visits. Furthermore, it was concluded that a majority of the homemaking teachers perceived that school administrators considered home visitations as somewhat important or unimportant to the total vocational homemaking program at their schools.
