Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the needs and attitudes of home economics teachers in relation to inservice education. Two groups of teachers were randomly selected to participate in the study: (a) teachers who attended the 1983 Vocational Summer Workshop and (b) teachers who did not attend the 1983 Vocational Summer Workshop. Subjects from each of the two groups included home economics teachers from each of the eight educational regions of the public schools in North Carolina. A questionnaire was mailed to the 184 teachers selected for each group. Data for the study were obtained from 120 teachers who attended the workshop and 78 teachers who did not attend the workshop. There were significant differences between the two groups and their attitudes about inservice education. Home economics teachers who attended the vocational workshop tended to be more positive in their attitudes concerning the benefits of inservice education programs and participation in inservice programs.
