Learning Responsibility: The Importance of the Home, School and Workplace. Ideas for Action in Education and Work, Issue 6.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The findings of a research project undertaken by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL) on student responsibility as it relates to job performance are reported. Forty high school students, 15 teachers, and 18 employers involved in Cooperative Work Experience and Experience-Based Career Education programs were interviewed. The students had been rated by their teachers as either high or low in responsibility. Separate sections of the report discuss findings on the meaning of responsibility as defined by students, teachers, and employers; perceptions of the importance and role of the home, the school, and the workplace in the development of responsibility; and correlations between teacher and student ratings of the students' responsibility. Discussed in the final two sections are points of agreement and disagreement among the students, teachers, and employers and implications for action which can be drawn from the study. (DC)
