ESTIMATING THE HUMAN RESOURCES FOR RESEARCH IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION IN MINNESOTA.
PUCEL, DAVID J.; AND OTHERS
ONE SURVEY IDENTIFIES EDUCATORS IN MINNESOTA WHO ARE INTERESTED IN CONDUCTING OR RECEIVING TRAINING FOR RESEARCH IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION AND ESTIMATES THEIR PRESENT LEVEL OF RESEARCH COMPETENCE. A SECOND SURVEY IDENTIFIES THE EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATORS IN THE STATE WHO HAVE SUPPORTIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD THEIR STAFF'S PARTICIPATION IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION RESEARCH. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO 5,441 PERSONS -- (1) ALL THE VOCATIONAL AND PRACTICAL ARTS EDUCATORS AND GUIDANCE COUNSELORS IN THE STATE AT THE JUNIOR, SENIOR, AND POST HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, AND (2) EDUCATORS IN RELATED FIELDS IN COLLEGES. OF THIS GROUP, 454 (8.2 PERCENT) EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN RESEARCH, AND 410 EXPRESSED A DESIRE TO RECEIVE ADDITIONAL RESEARCH TRAINING. OF THOSE WHO EXPRESSED AN INTEREST, 48 PERCENT HAD ADEQUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE. THE MOST INTERESTED PERSONS WERE IN INDUSTRIAL ARTS, GUIDANCE, AND BUSINESS AND DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION. THE POPULATION OF THE SECOND SURVEY CONSISTED OF SUPERINTENDENTS, PRINCIPALS, DIRECTORS, DEANS, AND DEPARTMENT HEADS (648 OF 1,186 RESPONDED). APPROXIMATELY 54 PERCENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATORS HAD SUPPORTIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD RESEARCH IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION. THEY PERCEIVED THE AVAILABILITY OF LOCAL SUPPORT AS THE MAJOR OBSTACLE FOR INITIATING OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION RESEARCH PROJECTS. (PS)
