Intentions of Grade 12 Students, 1982.
McCort, Harold; Bremner, Larry
A survey of the intentions of grade 12 students was conducted in October 1981 for use in planning postsecondary education programs in the province of Manitoba. More than 10,000 students were surveyed regarding their vocational and educational plans, and results were compared with surveys from the 2 previous years. Results showed that although a slightly larger percentage of females definitely planned on postsecondary education, there was little difference between the plans of males and females. The sample had a slightly larger percentage of students who indicated a possibility of attending a postsecondary educational institution. As in the 1981 survey, students indicated that two events which would change their plans were "if the desired course was not available" or "if a large number of people became unemployed in that profession." Numerous tables as well as the appendices provide documentation for the research findings. (JAC)
