Changes in High School Vocational Coursetaking in a Larger Perspective.
Hurst, David; Hudson, Lisa
Education Statistics Quarterly, v3 n1 p21-25 Spr 2001
Looks at trends in vocational coursetaking among high school students, examining these trends in the light of labor market changes. Data from two High School Transcript studies show that the decline in vocational coursetaking from 1982 to 1998 is relatively small compared to increases in academic coursetaking. The decline was due primarily to declines in the trade and industry and business program areas. (Author/SLD)
