Abstract:This study examines the aspirations of Ethiopian adolescents (15-19 years of age) based on a questionnaire survey of a sample of 239 high school students (117 males and 122 females) completing their final year in the 1997/98 academic year. They were asked about their educational aspirations, occupational choice, marriage and family, and their future activities. The effect of gender, family socioeconomic status, and personal academic status was also taken into consideration. Bibliogr., sum.
