Enrollment and Follow-Up Trends of Students of Full-Time Day Programs of Minnesota Area Vocational-Technical Institutes.
Pucel, David J.; Murphy, Herb
The study examines trends among students and graduates of the Minnesota Area Vocational Technical Institutes (AVTIs). Some of the data were gathered yearly between 1970-71 and 1973-74; some were gathered yearly between 1971-72 and 1973-74. Seventeen selected variables were reviewed. Relatively minor changes occurred over the years on seven of the variables: age, sex, marital status, size of household, handicaps, high school graduates, and relation of first job after graduation to training. The percentages of enrollees from households with parents in professional-managerial occupations and craftsman-operative occupations tended to increase slightly as did household income. The percentage of graduates employed during the first year after graduation has been gradually increasing as had the percentage of graduates employed in related occupations during that time. The percentage of students graduating from ATVIs has been decreasing while withdrawals and students completing training objectives without graduating have been increasing. The percentage of students withdrawing for economic reasons has been increasing. The percentage of students having only one job during their first year after graduation has been decreasing as has the percentage of students unavailable for employment due to military service. Appendixes tabulate the data with respect to the 17 variables. (JR)
