The Evaluation of Vocational and Consumer Education by Graduating High School Seniors.
Cooper, Richard Magill
The study attempts to survey and record the opinions of high school seniors on the vocational and consumer aspects of their formal education. Following a brief overview of the literature related to current vocational and consumer education programs is a description of the survey instrument and the study sample--two San Diego (California) County high schools representing upper-middle and lower-middle income communities. The survey instrument is included in the document and the resulting data analyzed and tabulated. The study concludes that substantial instruction is needed in the area of consumer education and more adequate counseling must be effected in assisting the student to make the college preparatory/vocational decision. Coordination of the consumer curriculum is needed. Finally, it is determined that a coordinated, vertical career education program embracing all grade levels would reduce the incidence of misplaced education of the community's youth in preparation for their assumption of productive roles in the community.
