Educational and Occupational Plans of Farm Boys in 1967

  • Yao-chi Lu (a1)


Decisions farm boys make upon graduation from high school with regard to education and occupation are important to their future welfare, the optimum allocation of human resources, and the rate of economic growth. In order to help these boys make educational and occupational plans, parents, teachers, counselors, and other adults must understand what factors influence their choices. Several well designed studies have been conducted in other states by sociologists and economists within this general area. This analysis was specifically designed to provide information about the factors which influence Oklahoma farm boys' educational and occupational plans.
