Learning About the Labor Force: Occupational Knowledge Among High School Males
DeFleur, Lois B.; Menke, Ben A.
Sociology of Education, 48, 3, 324-45, Sum 75
This study examines and assesses occupational knowledge among 300 high school males in eastern Washington. Interviews of these students about occupations available in their region and about job information they had received indicated that there was little increase in occupational knowledge during the high school years. The author concludes that schools must expand their community contacts as sources of occupational information. (Author/DB)
