ATTITUDES OF PUBLIC SCHOOL PERSONNEL TOWARDS THE INTRODUCTION TO VOCATIONS PROGRAM IN NORTH CAROLINA.
CLARY, JOSEPH RAY
DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR 1963-64, NORTH CAROLINA SCHOOLS INTRODUCED A NINTH-GRADE COURSE WHICH PROVIDED OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION AS A BASIS FOR VOCATIONAL PLANNING. AFTER 4 YEARS, 366 TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS WHO HAD AT LEAST 2 YEARS EXPERIENCE WITH THE PROGRAM WERE SURVEYED BY QUESTIONNAIRES. EIGHTY PERCENT RESPONDED. AREAS COVERED WERE NEED FOR THE COURSE, APPROPRIATENESS OF OBJECTIVES AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH THEY WERE MET, RELATIONSHIP TO OTHER COURSES, APPROPRIATENESS OF CONTENT AND GRADE LEVEL, REQUIRED TEACHER QUALIFICATIONS, MOST EFFECTIVE TEACHING METHODS, AND SUGGESTIONS FOR AND BARRIERS TO IMPROVEMENT. THE WRITER CONCLUDED THAT (1) SUCH A COURSE IS NEEDED, (2) THE OBJECTIVES ARE SATISFACTORILY ATTAINED IN MOST SCHOOLS, (3) THE STUDENTS' DECISIONS SHOULD DETERMINE LATER COURSE OFFERINGS, (4) SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE COURSE SHOULD RESULT IN FEWER DROPOUTS, (5) MORE STUDY IS NEEDED TO LEARN IF THE COURSE SHOULD BE REQUIRED OR ELECTIVE, (6) BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS SHOULD TAKE THE COURSE, (7) RESOURCE PERSONS AND FIELD TRIPS SHOULD BE USED EXTENSIVELY, (8) THERE SHOULD BE ADEQUATE TEACHING MATERIALS, SUPPLIES, AND EQUIPMENT, (9) MORE ATTENTION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO TEACHER PREPARATION, AND (10) MORE ADEQUATE BUDGETS SHOULD BE PROVIDED.
