IMPROVING VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN THE TOP O' MICHIGAN AREA.
HAINES, PETER G.; AND OTHERS
SIX COUNTIES IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE LOWER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN WERE STUDIED TO DETERMINE NEEDED VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS, AND TO PROPOSE A FEASIBLE PLAN FOR THESE PROGRAMS. A TEAM OF RESEARCHERS COLLECTED DATA THROUGH SURVEYS, INTERVIEWS, GROUP MEETINGS, AND INSPECTION OF FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT. TABLES AND DATA SHOW--(1) CLASSIFICATION OF SAMPLE OCCUPATIONS, (2) POPULATION CHANGE, (3) SECONDARY ENROLLMENTS BY GRADE LEVEL, 1964-65, (4) EMPLOYED WORKERS BY MAJOR OCCUPATIONS, (5) OCCUPATIONAL INTERESTS OF 11TH GRADERS AND THEIR PARENTS, (6) RESIDENCE OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES AND DROPOUTS 2 YEARS AFTER GRADUATION, AND (7) PRESENT AND PROPOSED PROGRAMS OF DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION, HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION, INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION, AND EDUCATION FOR OFFICE AND AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS. THE INVESTIGATOR RECOMMENDED THAT (1) THE TWO INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL DISTRICTS SHOULD ESTABLISH THREE AREA VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS, (2) THE INTERMEDIATE DISTRICTS SHOULD CREATE AN OCCUPATIONAL COUNSELING PROGRAM FOR ADULTS, (3) SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH ENROLLMENT UNDER 300 SHOULD NOT OPERATE VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS, BUT SHOULD UTILIZE THE SHARED-TIME PROGRAM WITH THE AREA VOCATIONAL SCHOOL, AND (4) NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE SHOULD DEVELOP DEGREE-LEVEL TECHNICAL AND SUBPROFESSIONAL CURRICULUMS THROUGH FORMATION OF A DIVISION OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION.
