A Conceptual Framework for the Study of Aspirations.
Sherwood, Richard A., Jr.
Research in Rural Education, v6 n2 p61-66 1989
Proposes an operational definition of aspiration as any goal toward which an individual invests time, effort, or money; this definition focuses on the dynamics of personal choice, retains the field theory perspective of previous research, suggests new ways of quantifying aspiration levels, and permits comparisons of previously incommensurable aspirations.
