Perrone, Vito; And Others
This monograph provides a contextual statement and an introduction to some data from a study of high school students and their employment. The small amount of interpretive comment introduces the 31 tables and calls attention to specific data of particular significance. Data (presented in percentages) come from a survey of all (2056) junior and senior students in the Grand Forks and Fargo public schools (4 schools), 50% of the teachers (190 teachers) in these schools representing all subject fields, 160 parents of surveyed students, 50 employers of students in Grand Forks and Fargo, and school records of 350 of the students who completed the survey. Tables present these types of data: students employed and not employed, hours of work per week, employment sources, dollars per hour, sources used for employment, rationale for employment, student ratings of academic skills, perceived interests of parents, students' motivational level, school absence, employment attitudes, teacher perspectives about student employment, student participation and attendance in extracurricular activities, extracurricular and work hours by father's occupational status, and employer ratings of job performance, reliability, and assessment of academic skills.
