High school students receive little guidance about careers and postsecondary education, particularly when it comes to options other than attending four-year colleges and universities, researchers at Michigan's Ferris State University have found. They concluded that teenagers' career goals were defined overwhelmingly by parents, rather than guidance counselors and others. The researchers interviewed 809 high school juniors and seniors around the country.
