Survey of High School Students' Attitudes Toward College Attendance.
Asher, E. J., Jr.
Western Michigan University conducted a survey of high school students' attitudes toward college attendance. A questionnaire was mailed to the Director of Guidance in Michigan high schools with an enrollment of 1,000 or more. In all, 183 questionnaires were mailed and 85 were returned. They emphasized student attitudes toward college attendance and the job market, changes in vocational choice, and expected changes in patterns of college attendance. Results of the survey indicated an increased interest in 2-year trade and vocational programs, and increased awareness of job opportunities, and an expected slight downward enrollment trend in 4-year colleges corresponding to an expected upward enrollment pattern for community colleges. Further details of survey results and tables are included. (MJM)
