Post-High School Activities of the 1973 Graduates by Race and Sex.
Senier, John
Compared in this document are the post-high school activities of the 1972 and 1973 graduates from public and nonpublic high schools in Pennsylvania. Areas of comparison were (1) enrollment in a postsecondary degree-granting institution (PDGI) vs. other activities (enrollment decreased by 5,172 students from 1972 to 1973; the number finding work increased slightly; 750 fewer students entered the military); (2) public vs. nonpublic high school graduates (40% public vs. 54.5% private school graduates entered a PDGI, and 3.5% vs. 1.7% entered the armed forces); (3) public high school graduates by sex (an almost equal number graduated, but 2,180 fewer women entered a PDGI and left the state, more entered an associate degree-granting business school); (4) 1973 public high school graduates by race and sex (regardless of race, more males attended a PDGI; the majority of Oriental Americans went to college, whereas the percentage of Blacks was below that of all graduates); (5) post high school activities of public academic program graduates (of the 38% in academic programs, 50.1% were male; the majority of Oriental Americans were in academic programs; Black and Spanish Americans were underrepresented); (6) post high school activities of public vocational-technical program graduates (35% of 1972 graduates and 40.4% of 1973 graduates were vocational-technical students, but only 12.5% attended PDGIs); and (7) 1973 graduates and employment (31% employed with 13% of that total from nonpublic schools; more females had received vocational training; the proportion of Blacks and Spanish Americans who entered the labor force was about the same as for all graduates, though a much smaller proportion of these were from academic programs; and less than 8% of Oriental American public school graduates worked immediately.) Data tables are appended. (VB)
