VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AS PERCEIVED BY DIFFERENT SEGMENTS OF THE POPULATION.
CROWLEY, ROBERT J.; WENRICH, RALPH C.
THIS STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN IN CENTERVILLE, MICHIGAN, A COMMUNITY WITH 2,500 STUDENTS, IN HIGH SCHOOLS, EVENLY DIVIDED BETWEEN BOYS AND GIRLS. THE SURVEY DISCUSSES THE STEPS IN PREPARATION AND EVALUATION OF THE IMAGE OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND SUGGESTS METHODS OF USING THE IVE. PARENTS OF ELEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS, EMPLOYERS LOCATED IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND SCHOOL PROFESSIONALS CONTRIBUTED TO THE STUDY. IN TODAY'S WORLD, EMPLOYERS HAVE BECOME MORE SELECTIVE, PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING A CURRICULUM FOR THE EMPLOYMENT-BOUND STUDENT NEED TO KNOW HOW PARTS OF THE POPULATION FEEL ABOUT VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS ARE AWARE THAT LESS THAN HALF OF THE STUDENTS AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL WILL ATTEND COLLEGE, BUT THESE STUDENTS NEED AN INTENSIVE PROGRAM OF STUDIES. HOWEVER, MEANINGFUL EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES FOR THE REMAINING PUPILS MUST BE GIVEN. ACCOMPANYING THE TEXT ARE FIGURES, DATA-COLLECTING FORMS, STATISTICAL TABLES, AND FORMULAS (LIKERT-TYPE SCALE AND THE SEMANTIC DIFFERENTIAL).
