A Pilot Follow-Up Study of High School Graduates for the Years 1961 and 1965 in the Twenty-three Counties of West Kentucky Having Counselors During 1964-1965. Final Report.
The purpose of the pilot project was to initiate and implement a research activity that will: (1) obtain information about the persistence of high school graduates in college; (2) obtain information about high school graduates regarding their choice of jobs or occupations; (3) obtain the opinions of high school graduates concerning their high school programs and post-high school training and employment; (4) provide school counselors with information about their own graduates that can be used for the improvement of guidance programs; and (5) subject a questionnaire to testing prior to its use in a continuous program of statewide follow-up studies of Kentucky high school graduates. The questionnaire was sent to each of the 1961 and 1965 graduates from the participating high schools in 18 counties of western Kentucky. The 18 counties included 26 participating school districts. The districts consisted of a total of 31 participating high schools. In 1961, 19 (or 61.3%) of the participating high schools employed school counselors as compared to 1965, when all 31 (or 100%) participating schools employed counselors. The total number of respondents was 3,491. Responses to the questionnaire are presented in tabular form. (Author)
