Welker, L. C., Jr.; Ginn, Clyde N.
The results are briefly summarized of a study to investigate the relationship of factors other than job skills (such as social skills, life style, mobility, family relationships, and contextual factors) to the long range success of vocational and technical training programs. Data were gathered about students in secondary and postsecondary vocational institutions in nine geographic regions of Mississippi. Information was supplied by center directors, teachers, and questionnaires given to students. Findings relating to the students' plans for living and working location, their need for social change, and the factors tending to affect their mobility patterns are mentioned. (Author/EC)
