In this study, efforts are made to report related data, gathered through questionnaires, which reflect plans of high school seniors over the past decade. Information presented should provide some valuable insights for improved policy-making, planning, and administration. The first chapter explains the purposes of the report and the sources of data and related publications. Chapter 2 presents the comparisons between classes of the characteristics of high school seniors, including sex, race, type of program (course concentration), grade average, and size of community. The characteristics of the head of household are described in chapter 3; these include relationships (i.e. father, mother, other), educational level, and occupation. The comparisons and developing trends of seniors' educational and employment plans after graduation from high school, and their career or occupational choices are described in chapter 4. The plans of high school seniors who do plan to continue their education are presented in chapter 5. Chapter 6 is devoted to information concerning those seniors who plan to delay the continuation of their education for six months or longer after graduation from high school, and to those who do not plan to enroll in an educational program in the future. Selected characteristics for special groups and interrelationships are presented in chapter 7 (e.g. seniors' plans after graduation and how these plans vary between seniors by sex, race, grade average, etc.). The most distinct trend identified throughout the study is the increasing proportion of students who plan immediate employment. (SH)
