1967-68 Hawaii High School Senior Survey.
Boyer, Marcia A.
To assess the interest of Hawaiian high school seniors in attending community colleges of the state, a survey was conducted in late 1967. The survey included questions about the academic and socio-economic backgrounds of seniors, their post-secondary plans, and their plans concerning community colleges in particular. Of the state's 57 public and private high schools, 39 were represented in the study. An 82% (8,201 students) return was obtained. Of this total, 69% indicated that they planned to continue their education in the next year, 24% were uncertain, and 7% definitely were not going to school in the next year. Of the seniors who planned to continue their education, 41% were interested in attending 4-year institutions in Hawaii, while 23% intended to enroll in 4-year institutions on the mainland, and 17% planned to attend community colleges in Hawaii. Choices of a field of study revealed that 71% were going into a baccalaureate degree program, 17% into business and commerce programs, and 12% into trade or technical programs. The two major types of programs indicated for enrollment were business education (35%) and college transfer (23%). (DG)
