NASSP Bulletin, v98 n2 p163-179 Jun 2014
The wish to be seen as an adult has been an adolescent goal for generations. This goal is more difficult to attain in a technological society because extended education is needed for employment but the criteria for adult recognition continue to reflect conditions of the past. Results are reported for an online poll of 288 high school students about their career orientation. Ways to improve student readiness for employment are recommended for schools, parents, and adolescents.
