Class of 1974 Post-High School Plans Survey. A Staff Report. Educational Coordinating Council Report No. 8-74.
This report presents a summary of the major findings of a 1974 survey designed to indicate the post-high school activity plans of Oregon high school seniors. Approximately 26,500 questionnaires were completed by seniors in the 1974 graduating classes in public and private high schools in the state, representing a sample of 80 percent of the projected graduates. Results indicated: (1) The proportion of 1974 graduates expecting to attend school and work at the same time increased from the 1973 level, while the number who expect to attend school exclusively decreased from the 1973 level. (2) A comparison of the school expectation of seniors indicating work and school and those indicating school only confirmed that the work and school group is most likely to attend community colleges or proprietary schools. (3) The percentage of students expecting to attend Oregon insitutions has remained fairly stable over a 3-year period, but there has been a significant drop in the number of students expecting to attend out-of-state institutions.
