An Economic and Institutional Analysis of the Cooperative Vocational Education Program in Dayton, Ohio.
Stromsdorfer, Ernst W.; Fackler, James S.
This case study examines the economic and institutional impact of cooperative vocational education on the employment, earnings and educational performance of the 1966 and 1970 graduation cohorts of Patterson High School, Dayton, Ohio. The performance of these groups is contrasted with that of students in the comprehensive high schools for the same time period. The results of this study, based on mail questionnaire data and complete high school scholastic records, indicate a mixed picture of performance for cooperative education, especially when models employing multiple regression are used. However, the program is clearly a desirable educational alternative for some high school students. A bibliography of the economic analysis of cooperative vocational education as well as a survey of the methodologies of these studies is included in the analysis. (Author)
