high school students
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether high school students who desired the same educational status as their parents (consistent group) showed higher career awareness than those who desired the different educational statuses from their parents (inconsistent group). Participants were 316 tenth-graders, 290 eleventh-graders, and 278 twelfth-graders. They completed the Career Awareness Scale to measure four areas of career awareness; interpersonal relationship, information utilization, future planning, and decision-making. They also completed the Parental Support Scale and Desired Educational Status Questionnaire. The consistent group showed higher parental support score and lower decision-making score than the inconsistent group. Additionally, high school students who desired higher level of educational status showd higher information utilization and decision-making scores than those who desired lower level of educational status. These results were discussed in relation to parent-child relationship.
