The purpose of this study was to determine why ninth graders chose not to enroll for an industrial arts class. The following questions gave guidance for the investigator to design a questionnaire: 1. Is the decision primarily made by the student? 2. Are there external influences such as peer pressures, parental advice, school guidance? 3. Has the student planned to enroll later? 4. Is the decision a temporary one?
