Research Related to Bowling Green Independent School System's Comprehensive Career Education Model.
The final report of the year-long program that introduced career education into the Bowling Green Independent School System, Warren County, Kentucky, is presented. The main objective of the study reported was to supply an empirical data base on which decisions could be made at the local, regional, and State level regarding career education program development, implementation, and refinement. Five data collection instruments and two measurement devices were developed to gather data from teachers, counselors, administrators, parents, and pupils in the nine public schools of the system. The data are presented in 57 tables. Complete anonymity of respondent identity was maintained, negating any direct follow up attempts. Research methods and procedures are extensively discussed, including a review of literature, instrument development, data collection, and data analysis. The findings are summarized in a list of 50 summary statements. Appended material takes up half of the document and includes: the teacher, counselor, administrator, parent, and student surveys; scoring key; and regression analysis variable lists and summary tables. It is stated that large portions of the findings presented can be generalized to other educational agencies involved with career education programs. (LH)
