Fashion merchandising--Study and teaching (Secondary)--Illinois
The purpose of this study was to determine the knowledge base for high-school Home Economics teachers limited to the state of Illinois for development of curriculum for high school fashion merchandising career programs as well as the interest levels of high school students for careers in fashion merchandising. The assessment consisted of knowledge needed and equipment needs for high school fashion merchandising programs. The subjects were 200 high school home economics teachers in the state of Illinois and 100016-18 year olds in six large and small high schools in the community college service area. Analysis was completed by percentage and rank order. Results indicated lack of knowledge on the teacher questionnaire on basic components for curriculum development for both knowledge and equipment needs for high school fashion merchandising career programs. Results on the student questionnaire indicated high interest levels on the part of the students for careers in fashion merchandising.
