Future Plans of 1972 Oregon High School Seniors.
In the fall and winter of 1971, the Oregon Educational Coordinating Council and the Office of High School Relations of the State Department of Higher Education undertook a project to survey the future plans of all Oregon high school seniors. This report presents a summary of the results of this survey and some important implications of the survey results for postsecondary education in Oregon. Summary of major findings includes: (1) The majority (70 percent) of Oregon high school seniors who graduate in 1972 plan to continue their education at the postsecondary level in the fall of 1972. (2) The future educational plans of Oregon high school seniors are closely related to the educational background of their parents. (3) The post-high school plans of members of certain minority groups in Oregon are significantly different from the majority of Oregon high school seniors. (4) The vast majority of Oregon high school seniors who plan to continue their education at the postsecondary level intend to enroll in Oregon institutions. (5) Roughly equal numbers of Oregon high school seniors intend to enroll in vocational-technical and academic programs at the postsecondary level. (6) The primary reason motivating Oregon high school seniors to pursue post-high school education is a desire to learn skills that are necessary for a job or career. Appendixes include the survey questionnaire and the coding system for the questionnaire. Related tables accompany the text. (Author/PG)
