Experiences of 1972 Oregon High School Graduates. A Staff Report. Educational Coordinating Council Report No. 30-73.
A random sample of 6,000 1972 high school graduates in Oregon was drawn from the master file of high school seniors who responded to the Class of 1972 Post-High School Plans questionnaire. The questionnaire was designed to provide data concerning the need for postsecondary educational programs in Oregon as well as information about the effectiveness of Oregon high schools in preparing students to pursue their chosen post-high school activities. Completed questionnaires were returned by 58 percent of the original sample. Results of the survey indicate: (1) a decline in the percentage of graduates continuing their education at the postsecondary level as compared with the previous year, (2) graduates who have been enrolled in career cluster programs while in their high school are, because of their enrollment, less likely to continue their education at the postsecondary level, (3) although the majority of respondents felt they were either well prepared or somewhat prepared for their current activities, the percentage was somewhat lower than for 1971 graduates. This decline may be associated with the decline in the percentage of graduates continuing their education. Statistical data are included. (MJM)
