Abstract: The educational system in our culture has been established "to make explicit those cultural values in which we are reared and then to lead the student to make choices which are as conscious and as wise as possible." These choices, be they vocational, occupational, or educational, are means by which man desires to promote his acceptance in society and thereby rise on the social ladder. Paralleling this social ladder, today's industrialized society has given rise to an educational ladder that provides man with a legitimate means of social mobility. At various levels of this ladder, one must stop and evaluate the role that he wishes to take upon himself - a role that meets a necessity of our industrial society. He must meet the requirements for completing each step of his educational career along the way, and in so doing, ask himself - can I fulfill society's expectations of this particular position?
