The problem of this study is to determine if cooperative distributive education programs are being utilized in retail grocery, specialty, and department stores in Billings, Montana, to the maximum benefit of these stores, the students, the schools, and the community. The purpose of this study is to determine answers to the following questions: 1. How many of the retail stores that are presently participating in the cooperative distributive education program plan to continue this policy? 2. If these types of stores are not presently involved in the cooperative distributive education program, would they be interested in participating in the program? 3. If they express a willingness to participate in the program, in which of the areas of distribution would they be willing to assist in the training of these students? 4. If a business indicates that it is not interested in participating in the cooperative distributive education program, why does management have this attitude towards the program? This study is needed for the students, the school, the retail businesses, and the community if the result of this program is to be employable workers adjusted to the world of business.
