THE PREPARATION OF YOUTH FOR EFFECTIVE OCCUPATIONAL UTILIZATION, THE ROLE OF THE SECONDARY SCHOOL IN THE PREPARATION OF YOUTH FOR EMPLOYMENT.
KAUFMAN, JACOB J.; AND OTHERS
ISSUES IN THE EDUCATION OF YOUTH FOR EMPLOYMENT WERE INVESTIGATED. THE STUDY INCLUDED AN EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, ITS IMAGE, AND THE ROLE IT PLAYS IN THE TRAINING OF SUCH SPECIAL GROUPS AS GIRLS AND NEGROES. IT WAS FOUND THAT, FROM AN EARNING POINT-OF-VIEW, GRADUATES OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CURRICULUMS DID AS WELL AS ACADEMIC GRADUATES, ALTHOUGH THE FORMER APPEARED TO BE MORE SATISFIED WITH THEIR JOBS. NEGROES WERE USUALLY BETTER IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CURRICULUMS THAN IN THE ACADEMIC CURRICULUMS, BUT APPEARED TO BE BLOCKED IN JOB PLACEMENT. OPPORTUNITIES FOR GIRLS WERE QUITE LIMITED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS BE EXPANDED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ALL YOUTH AND THAT NEW METHODS OF INSTRUCTION BE DEVISED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUTH IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS. IT WAS ALSO RECOMMENDED THAT THE ADMINISTRATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION BE GIVEN A GREATER VOICE IN THE SETTING OF SCHOOL POLICIES AND PROGRAMS. FINALLY, IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT INDUSTRIAL ADVISORY GROUPS PARTICIPATE MORE ACTIVELY IN PROGRAM PLANNING. (TC)
