Abstract: The primary purpose of this study was to identify problems recognized by North Carolina secondary vocational home economics teachers. The study was designed to determine problems in general, problems that persist regardless of the amount of experience, and the kinds of problems recognized by beginning teachers and by experienced teachers. A questionnaire was developed for obtaining the desired information and was mailed to a random sample of 100 vocational home economics teachers in North Carolina secondary schools. Two follow-up attempts were made which resulted in an 81 percent return of the questionnaires. It was assumed that teachers differ in their perception of their problems, that they are aware of and can indicate their problems in questionnaire form, and that the questionnaire items were typical of problems encountered. Problems which these teachers may have had but did not recognize were beyond the scope of this study.
