Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Div. of Educational Research and Statistics.
The basic objective of this study was to determine the educational and occupational aspirations of Virginia's high school seniors. In May, 1967, all high school seniors in Virginia were asked to complete a survey form. Replies were received from about 95% of the students. The preliminary data obtained was considered Phase I and the comprehensive analysis which followed as Phase II. Phase III consisted of further study of three areas not covered in the previous parts. The results, including tables of data are given for each phase. The data in phase I is analyzed question by question. Results included in Phase II show: (1) differences in future plans between boys in private versus boys in public schools; (2) differences associated with sex; (3) differences associated with college-non college classification. Recommendations for further study include: (1) additional study and analysis of the 1967 survey, and (2) replication of the study in May, 1970. (KJ)
