Abstract: The purposes of this study were to determine whether or not knowledge and attitudes related to child care practices differed between (a) students .who had completed Child Care Services/Teacher Aide and students who had never studied the course, and (b) students in Educational Region V and Educational Region VII in North Carolina. The sample selected for the study consisted of 200 students randomly selected from completers of two North Carolina Occupational Programs in Educational Regions V and VII in 1982. One hundred students had completed Child Care Services/Teacher Aide and 100 students had completed Directed Office Occupations. Fifty of the students representing each of the courses were from each of the educational regions. A mail questionnaire was sent to the students with a return stamped self-addressed envelope and a cover letter explaining the purpose of the research. Follow-up letters and questionnaire booklets were mailed to nonrespondents after two weeks and four weeks. Sixty-one usable questionnaires were returned by Child Care Services/Teacher Aide subjects and 74 usable questionnaires were returned by Directed Office Occupations subjects, giving a return rate of 67.5%.
