Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 2 p199-205 2012
This research attempts to examine the demographic characteristics of Greek adolescents who choose either general or technical high schools as well as the parameters related to students' specific educational decision. The sample of the survey includes 198 students from both schools. Results showed that students' choice was not directly related to their family. Personal preferences, career development, independence and professional stability were the most significant parameters that students had taken into account when considering their educational choices. Results revealed gender differences concerning the relationship between family, parental variables and students' educational choice. (Contains 4 tables.)
