March 1976
Education Digest;Mar1976, Vol. 41 Issue 7, p66
This article reports that five serious deficiencies in high school education were pinpointed by 30-year-olds, in a quality-of-life survey recently. The survey, sponsored by the National Institute of Education, interviewed 1,000 young adults who had been previously interviewed in 1960 as a part of Project TALENT. Cited as deficient in schools were vocational guidance, quality of teaching, individualized instruction, curriculum, and counseling. Lack of adequate counseling and guidance were cited by 86 percent of the men and 66 percent of the women as having inhibited their development. Sixty-five percent of all interviewees felt individualized instruction would have improved their education.
