Garbin, A. P.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to identify youth adjustment problems in the transition from high school to work and to recommend possible solutions. Data collected in Columbus, Omaha, and New Orleans, through interviews with 642 workers between the ages of 17 and 27, focused on the following areas: (1) transition from high school to full-time work, (2) motivations, rewards and job evaluations, (3) relationships with work environment, (4) attitudes, values, and behavioral patterns related to work, and (5) career patterns. The findings in these areas are relevant for administrators, teachers, counselors, and business leaders interested in improving the transition from school to work. (BH)
