Follow-Up of a Random Sample of 1975/76 Graduates at The Ohio State University's College of Education Teacher Certification Program. Technical Report #4.
deVoss, Gary; Phelps, Carol
This followup study reports on the career patterns of 117 graduates from Ohio State University's College of Education, whether they were actively teaching or were in another job situation. Statistics are provided on demographic information and current occupations. Nonteachers were asked why they chose not to teach and how their present occupation was chosen. Teachers responded to questions on their attitudes toward their work, how their concerns have changed since beginning to teach, their current problems, patterns they expect their careers to follow, and their opinion of the training they received at Ohio State. Results are analyzed with particular emphasis on their implications for possible changes in the University's teacher education program. The appendix includes a sample of the questionnaires used, item-by-item responses to both the written and telephone questionnaires, and profiles of three typical graduates. (JD)
