New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Occupational Education Programs.
The State of New York conducted a follow-up study of the 76,000 students who completed an occupational education program in New York in 1987. Students were followed up by mail and telephone interviews, with an overall rate of return of 67 percent. Some of the major findings of the study were the following: (1) for all occupational education completers, 91 percent were employed, attending a postsecondary program, or in the military; (2) 89 percent of students available for employment were employed; (3) approximately 53 percent of cooperative education students were employed after high school and 36 percent were continuing their education; (4) 87 percent of disadvantaged students who completed an occupational education program were employed, attending a postsecondary program, or in the military; and (5) 83 percent of handicapped students who completed vocational education programs were employed, in a postsecondary program, or in the military. (The document briefly describes the findings, survey methods, and rates of return for various occupational subjects and educational agencies. Results are reported for New York City; the Big Four cities--Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Yonkers; programs offered by the Boards of Cooperative Educational Services; and programs offered by local educational agencies.)
