The major purpose of this study was two-fold: (1) to survey the opinions of three selected groups of girls relative to the effectiveness of their high school home economics programs, and (2) to attempt to identify implications offered for the strengthening of the home economics curricula in the Lincoln, Nebraska public high schools.

The specific objectives were to (a) ascertain to what extent the course content provided was felt important by girls at each level; (2) find out what the differences were between the needs of the sophomore girls in high school, senior girls in high school, and needs of the girls who had been out of school for a period of two years; (3) determine, within each subject area, if the course content was considered valuable.
