Perceptions of Fifth and Sixth Grade Females of Vocational Goals and Expected Lifestyle.
Burgette, Patricia Roop
In an effort to develop recommendations regarding programs tailored for the needs of elementary school females, data was collected and analyzed regarding goals and aspirations as expressed by girls at this academic level. A questionnaire was designed to tap the vocational aspirations and expected lifestyle of the girls selected to participate in the study. The sample questioned revealed that the young girls made their vocational choices from a narrow range of occupations and ones that are traditionally feminine. The lifestyles the girls envisioned were unrealistic in terms of a vocation along with marriage and a family. Some recommendations were made as a result of the data gathered. Further educational experiences intended to broaden the vocational possibilities for girls as well as to encourage more realistic expectations for future lifestyles are suggested. (Author)
