Hoffmann, Laura L.; Jackson, Aaron P.; Smith, Steven A.
Journal of Career Development, v32 n1 p31-45 2005
Patterns of educational achievement and employment indicate that Native American students face considerable barriers to career development. This is particularly true for those who live on reservations. This study used a hermeneutic analysis of qualitative interview data to identify and describe these barriers from the perspective of 29 Native American students in reservation secondary schools. Themes related to the barriers faced by these students are described and discussed.
