The Perceptions of Selected Male Public High School Seniors Concerning Specialized and Comprehensive Post-Secondary Schools in Minnesota.
Kiefer, Charles C.
The study surveyed the perceptions of selected male public senior secondary students relative to the specialized and comprehensive types of public two year post-secondary schools in Minnesota. Their perceptions of both school related and non-school related factors were determined. Further, the relative importance of these two types of factors, as perceived by the students, was investigated. The survey instrument, used in three schools, measured student perceptions concerning the students' preferred school, attendance patterns, educational program patterns, and school factor and non-school factor importance. The data are analyzed and described separately for the vocational-technical and non-vocational-technical students within each high school. Findings are tabulated and discussed. Appended materials make up three-fourths of the document and include: (1) definitions of terms, school factors and non-school factors, (2) the research instrument, (3) tabulated research data, and (4) publications list.
