Abstract

A five year trend analysis of attitudes of female high school seniors toward post-high school work and education possibilities investigates what, if any, trends exist regarding education and work they would be doing at age 30. Correlations between females' post-high school education and work goals and their parents attaining a college degree was studied. The relationship between daughters' education and work goals and the mothers' employment was researched; This study, while not showing a changing trend in the attitudes toward post-high school education, did define solidly the work and educational goals of female high school seniors during the period of 1985 through 1989.
