To my knowledge no such study as this has ever been made in the Ravenna or any other community in Nebraska which could be used in evaluating the courses offered in high school relative to their value to the student in obtaining a job. With the prevalence of the theory of specialization, does our high school offer such an opportunity to its students? One can best determine the effectiveness of the school program by the results obtained over a period of years.

The problem stated is to determine and evaluate some of the factors which influence high school graduates in selecting their occupations.
