Where Do Rural High School Students Go to Find Information about Their Futures?
Griffin, Dana; Hutchins, Bryan C.; Meece, Judith L.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n2 p172-181 Spr 2011
Using data from a national study of rural high school youth, the authors examined where students go to receive information about their futures and which sources are most helpful. Results indicated that students in rural and low-income schools were more likely to report going to teachers and found teachers to be most helpful compared with students in small town and higher income schools. Patterns of differentiation were also found on the basis of gender, ethnicity, and grade level.
