Abstract

The foregoing facts serve to indicate the significance of the follow-up technique in America today. Therefore, the purposes of this study are: (1) to review the literature in order to determine the values and purposes in making a follow-up study of high school graduates and drop-outs; and (2) to determine how meaningful the curriculum of the E. A. Kemp High School was to the members of the senior classes for the period 1949 through 1958 as measured by their responses to items on an interview schedule and questionnaires.

The problem defined is, what were the favorable and unfavorable aspects of the curriculum of the E. A. Kemp High School to the members of the senior classes for the period 1949-58; with reference to: (1) the graduates who entered college or completed their college work; (2) those persons who did not enter college but are gainfully employed; and (d) those persons who withdrew from school in their senior year?

Although 538 students were classified as members of the senior classes for the period 1949 through 1958, for this study samples will be taken from 400 students of the classes under study who could be contacted.
