Intentions of Grade 12 Students, 1981.
Bremner, Larry; McCort, Harold
A survey of the intentions of grade 12 students was conducted in January 1981 to provide information for planning postsecondary education programs in the province of Manitoba. More than 10,000 students were surveyed regarding their educational and career plans. Results showed that the 1981 sample had a larger percentage of students who indicated a possibility of going on to postsecondary education, with little difference between the plans of males and females. The two events most likely to change students' plans were "if their desired course was not available" and "if a large number of people became unemployed in their chosen profession." The students most often listed their parents as having an influence on their plans. Desire for a new life style was the circumstance most often cited as having some influence on the students' plans. Numerous tables as well as the appendices provide documentation of the research findings. (JAC)
