Secondary School Forestry Program: An Evaluation. An Evaluation of Forestry 10 at Charles Bloom Secondary School, Lumby, B.C., 1974-1979. Report No. 79:16.
LaFontaine, Herbert A.
Reported is a study which sought to determine whether a grade ten forestry class can provide students with basic skills in logging and to confirm the belief that a substantial number of the program graduates gain employment in the forest industry. Graduates from five years (1974-1979), local logging contractors, and industry personnel were surveyed. Questionnaires were distributed to 19 logging contractors and 90 former students. Opinions were also sought from the class teacher and from supervisory personnel employed in the major, local saw mill operations. Findings of this study suggest that proper skills have been emphasized in the program and that a majority of the former students found employment in the logging industry. (BT)
