Kithyo, Isaac Mattemu; Petrina, Stephen
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v39 n2 p21-43 Win 2002
A study of 39 technical college students in Kenya found the majority enrolled in gender-traditional programs. Although school facilities, guidance, and labor market orientation played a part, gender was the most persuasive factor in career choice. Parental pressure and stereotypical guidance reinforced gender norms, but some students were able to resist. (Contains 44 references.) (SK)
