Summary

To establish the feasibility of implementing applied biological and agricultural occupations programs in the metropolitan area of Chicago, four populations were surveyed by means of mailed questionnaires or interest inventories to determine: (1) the employment opportunities in the applied biological and agricultural industries, (2) the interests and attitudes of students, (3) the attitudes of school administrators, and (4) the attitudes and willingness of teachers to teach courses in applied biological and agricultural occupations. The procedures utilized to select the population, instrumentation, data, results, and conclusions are presented separately for each of the four populations. Some major conclusions were: (1) Administrators and teachers have generally positive attitudes toward the development of applied biological and agricultural programs, (2) Many teachers and administrators felt that not enough students are interested in these occupations, (3) Student interest in the applied biological and agricultural areas compared favorably with industrial and health occupations but not with business and office as personal and public service occupations, and (4) Ample job opportunities exist to merit the implementation of programs in applied biology and agriculture.
