Abstract

Historically, vocational education has been sex-typed by program area, following patterns in the work force. Increasing enrollments and employment of females and males in fields traditionally dominated by the opposite sex is one of the goals of vocational educators. In order to do this, vocational educators need to understand the individuals who now choose nontraditional programs and why they make the choices they do. Two questions guided this study: l. How do high school students come to make the decision to enroll in vocational programs nontraditional for their sex? 2. How do these students think about their current training in relation to their future plans?
