A Study of Business Education in the Public Secondary Schools of Illinois (Excluding Chicago).
Knott, James F.
To determine the current status of business education in the public secondary schools of Illinois, a comprehensive analysis was made regarding specific aspects of the business education program. The study was accomplished with a questionnaire designed to obtain data regarding the business education program, such as the organization and administration of business education departments, student enrollment by courses, and the number of one and two semester courses. Data were collected from 77.2 percent (500) of the Illinois public secondary schools, and revealed that about half of the Illinois high schools with formally organized business departments had one person designated as chairman of the department. Also, about 70 percent of the high schools indicated that they offer a bookkeeping sequence. It is recommended that the business department should establish a community advisory committee for business education. Other findings, conclusions, and recommendations are made. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to Northern Illinois University. (JS)
