The purpose of this study was to help determine whether or not the curriculum offered by the business education department of Culbertson High School was sufficiently serving the needs of the students who are enrolled in that school. With the prospect of improved instruction and a broader curriculum, this study was designed to produce a follow-up survey of the graduates of Culbertson High School and appropriate recommendations for the subsequent improvement of the program. In order to reach a conclusion and make recommendations, this study attempted to answer the following questions: 1. What are the present occupations of the graduates? 2. How many of the graduates of Culbertson High School enrolled in a post-secondary school? 3. How many of the graduates completed a course at a postsecondary institution? 4. Which business education courses did the graduate take while they were enrolled in high school? 5. Which of the courses that they took have proven the most useful since their graduation from high school? 6. Which of the courses that they took have proven the least useful since their graduation from high school? 7. What courses would the former graduates like to see initiated at Culbertson High School? 8. What is the recommended business education curriculum for a small high school? 9. What courses are other small high schools offering in the business education area? The need for this study was found in the fact that a follow-up study had not previously been done, and that there had been very little change in the business education curriculum for many years.
