Five Year Follow-Up Survey of Albemarle High School Graduates. Final Report.
Mawyer, Suzanne T.
A five-year followup survey of 1969 Albemarle County high school graduates was made from July 1, 1974 to July 1, 1975. Data collected regarding present job status, college attendance, and high school training were compared with high school ability level to gauge the relevance and effectiveness of high school vocational education programs. Survey results showed that the percentage of all 1969 graduates now in the work force is high. Although a relatively high percentage of general education graduates attended college, only half finished. More than half of the graduates had no high school vocational training at all, and the percentage of those with training for their present job is low. The figures also indicate that the general level student would benefit most from vocational programs, although academic students should not be discouraged from enrolling. Academic students desiring to enter management areas should, however, be encouraged to enroll in vocational programs. The survey instrument is appended. (KJ)
