Education and Counseling Status Report of Young Men and Women: A Survey of Senior Students from Fourteen Public Secondary Schools in Arkansas.
Patrick, Peggy W.
To determine the career aspirations, counseling sources, and future plans of young women in Arkansas so as to confirm or negate the belief that women do not aspire to nor seek higher level employment positions than traditionally relegated for women, questionnaires developed by members of the Task Force on Education and Counseling were mailed to superintendents in 16 randomly selected school districts who in turn forwarded them to local school personnel. A total of 14 school districts returned the completed questionnaires. Fifty senior girls and from 10 to 20 senior boys in each district, where possible, participated in the survey. Where the total enrollment was below 50, all senior girls participated. Findings revealed that: (1) More than one-third of the females surveyed expressed the traditional attitudes and beliefs about women as workers while approximately one-half of the males agreed, and (2) Almost two-thirds of the females expressed positive attitudes toward working women as compared to one-half of the male respondents.
