Young Men in High School and Beyond: A Summary of Findings from the Youth in Transition Project. Final Report.
Bachman, Jerald G.
This report is concerned with young men in their late teens. In particular, it deals with patterns of change, and stability, which can be linked to family, high school, and post-high school environment. The work had two intended functions and aims: 1) to provide information relevant to public policy decisions, and 2) to make a contribution to basic research in the Social Sciences. The project summarized in this report spans a period of seven years. The results are based on a panel of over 2000 young men, sampled from among tenth-graders in 1966 and followed for a total of four data collections concluding in 1970. The results show that a number of characteristics identify the potential dropout and among those dropouts and graduates who were employed, learning and job satisfaction ratings were not different on the average.
