Title
Differences Between a French and an English High School and Between the Educational and Occupational Aspirations of Their Working-Class Students
Abstract
An English language and a French language high school in two small neighbouring Quebec towns were studied in order to examine those organizational characteristics which might have a relationship to the working-class students' plans for the future and occupational careers. The author found that in the French school, there was greater stress on cooperation and primary relationships and encouragement of occupational aspirations as well as provision of practical occupational guidance. In the English school, there was greater stress on independence training, organizational experience, competition, secondary relationships and deferral of gratification.
