Abstract:This study described the types of jobs students with and without disabilities acquired through cooperative vocational education programs while in high school. Findings indicated significant correlations between the jobs attained through the cooperative vocational education program and prospective wages, hours, and total job openings available to students in the general labor market subsequent to the training they received through their cooperative program. Further, the study found significant relationships between student characteristics (e.g., gender, ethnicity and geographical location) and the types of cooperative vocational educational jobs they were participating in, as well as the prospective hourly wages, weekly hours, and total job openings that students could expect to attain in the general labor market based on the training they received from their cooperative vocational program.
