San Francisco Unified School District Senior Survey Summary, 1997.
City Coll. of San Francisco, CA.
This document is a summary of the findings of the 1997 San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Senior Survey. The survey is a multiple-choice response questionnaire administered to all San Francisco public high school seniors. Students were asked a series of questions about their plans for work and higher education after high school graduation. Included in the report is information on career and higher education plans of high school seniors, including which postsecondary educational institution students plan to attend. This information is provided at the school district level and is broken down by individual high school and ethnicity. Some of the main findings include: (1) of the 2,364 San Francisco seniors responding to this survey, 1725 plan to go to college, 455 plan to start a job, and 184 have other goals; (2) over 400 respondents indicated an intention to enroll at City College of San Francisco; and (3) post-high school plans vary by ethnicity--African Americans, American Indians, and Latinos are more likely to begin a job and less likely to continue their education after graduation than is the general population. Ambitions also vary by San Francisco's high schools. (JJL)
