Sex Differences in Adolescents' Orientation Toward Schooling.
Bender, David S.
This research project delving into sex differences in adolescents' orientations and expectations as regards education utilizes surveys of high school students. The data indicate that both adolescent girls and boys hold the same average post high school plans and receive similar messages from their parents concerning educational aspirations. However, girls who see school as useful were higher on the average in domestic orientation. Tables and references are included. (MML)
