Abstract
  • Changes in educational programs should be implemented only after a careful evaluation of the product. Information about the product in education is often not available to planners of vocational education programs. A follow-up study of former students is a means by which information about graduates may be collected and used as a basis for making curriculum changes. The purpose of this study was to determine if the present program of vocational agriculture is meeting the occupational needs of Crater High School students. A total of 121 former male students from Crater High School, covering a three year period from 1965 through 1967, were selected to participate in a follow-up study through a mailed questionnaire interview. Seventy-six former students with two or more years of agricultural training were compared with a group of 45 students without agricultural training. The specific criteria on which the comparisons between the two groups are based were: occupational status, post high school training, job satisfaction, value of high school training, income, and the number of jobs held. Also being analyzed were persons influencing graduates occupational choice, value of additional vocational training, and the location of employment. The following conclusions are based on the findings of the study. 1. Agricultural students do become employed in agricultural occupations with most of them entering business and lumbering occupations in agriculture, while over one-half of the comparison group entered the agricultural occupations of lumbering. 2. The current program of vocational agriculture at Crater High School is serving 75 percent of the students entering agricultural occupations. 3. Less than 42 percent of the male Crater High School former students have obtained some type of civilian post high school education. 4. Students trained in agriculture are more satisfied with their jobs than students with no specific vocational training. 5. Vocational agriculture is a meaningful program for students planning to enter agricultural occupations. 6. Study results indicate that counselors are not actively influential in directing patterns of occupational choice for students. 7. Former students of Crater High School feel that additional vocational training would be helpful to them in their jobs. 8. Agricultural graduates of Crater High School do remain in Jackson County for employment.
