Plans Beyond High School. A Statewide Survey of Florida High School Seniors Fall 1972.
State Univ. System of Florida, Tallahassee.
In the fall of 1972, 80,277 seniors in the public and private schools of Florida responded to a questionnaire titled "Plans Beyond High School." The survey instrument contained items relating to the students' intended courses of action subsequent to graduation. Responses of the students to the questionnaire items in terms of frequencies and percentages are reported. Results indicated a decline in the percentage of the senior classes indicating an expectation to enroll the following fall in a college or university on a full-time basis. This drop in stated plans was accompanied by a drop in the percentages of high school classes actually entering college. Results are categorized according to composition of high school class by race and sex, trends in post high school plans by sex and race, trends in types of institutions named by students, level of family income, intended plans versus actual courses of action, and noncollege bound respondents. Statistical data are included. (MJM)
