NASSP Bulletin, v88 n641 p46-60 2004
The purpose of this study was to illustrate specific factors that influenced graduating high school seniors not to immediately pursue additional education. A 13-item survey was developed to determine student and parental satisfaction with aspects of this decision and to further explore influential factors. Participants included students and parents representing five schools in the Midwest. Results are shared pertaining to student and parental perceptions of factors associated with school experiences and factors unique to their lives outside of school.
