EVALUATING VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF EDUCATION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. FINAL REPORT.
BYRAM, HAROLD M.
THE MAJOR PURPOSE WAS TO DEVELOP A GENERALIZED PROCEDURE FOR MAKING AN EVALUATION OF A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION USING THE SCHOOL'S OWN PERSONNEL RESOURCES COMMUNITY RESOURCES, AND STATE CONSULTANT SERVICES. A VARIETY OF ONGOING ACTIVITIES BY THE DIRECTOR, THE CONSULTANTS, AND THE STAFF IN THREE COOPERATING SCHOOLS IN MICHIGAN ARE DESCRIBED. THESE INCLUDED STAFF COMMITTEE WORK, SCHOOL OPEN-HOUSE VISITS, USE OF ADVISORY COMMITTEES, DEVELOPMENT OF SURVEY FORMS AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS, AND A STUDY OF PROGRAM OUTCOMES. THE PROJECT DEMONSTRATED THE VALUE OF INVOLVEMENT OF LOCAL STAFF. THE IMPORTANCE OF LOCAL ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF MEMBERS' APPROVAL AND SANCTION WAS EMPHASIZED. CONSULTANTS EVALUATING PROGRAMS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO GIVE MORE DIRECT HELP THAN WAS DONE IN THIS STUDY. THOSE STAFF MEMBERS WORKING ON A COMMITTEE SHOULD BE PROVIDED WITH RELEASED TIME BY THE LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOL. TWO EFFECTIVE PROCEDURES FOR CONDUCTING AN OCCUPATIONAL FOLLOWUP OF GRADUATES AND OTHER FORMER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WERE DEMONSTRATED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PROJECT WHICH WAS THE BASIS OF THE PRESENT REPORT BE EXTENDED TO OTHER SCHOOLS IN MICHIGAN. (PS)
