A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF THE ATTITUDES OF LOCAL ADMINISTRATORS REGARDING THE FINANCING OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN MICHIGAN.
VAN DYKE, ROBERT S.; WENRICH, RALPH C.
RESPONSES FROM 120 ADMINISTRATORS IN ALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN MICHIGAN EMPLOYING A REIMBURSED LOCAL DIRECTOR OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE THEIR OPINION ON--(1) PROBABLE EFFECTS ON REIMBURSED PROGRAMS IF THE SALARY REIMBURSEMENT WERE DISCONTINUED AT THE END OF 3 YEARS, (2) USE OF STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH SCHOOL AND POST HIGH SCHOOL SERVICES AND PROGRAMS, (3) USE OF STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF STATE SCHOOLS, AREA SCHOOLS, AND LOCAL SCHOOLS, AND (4) MORE EFFECTIVE USES OF STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDS. TABLES OF DATA INCLUDE--(1) FEDERAL AND STATE FUNDS APPROPRIATED FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN MICHIGAN BY YEAR FROM 1946 TO 1963, (2) FEDERAL AND STATE FUNDS PAID TO LOCAL COMMUNITIES FOR INSTRUCTION IN DAY SCHOOL PROGRAMS IN MICHIGAN HIGH SCHOOLS FOR COOPERATIVE TRAINING, AGRICULTURAL, HOMEMAKING, AND TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION, AND (3) CHANGES IN THE NUMBER OF REIMBURSED PROGRAMS OPERATED IN MICHIGAN FROM 1960 TO 1962. TABLES OF ADMINISTRATORS' OPINIONS ARE PRESENTED SEPARATELY FOR VOCATIONAL HOMEMAKING, TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL, COOPERATIVE OCCUPATIONS, AND AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS. IF SALARY REIMBURSEMENTS WERE ELIMINATED, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT FEW PROGRAMS WOULD BE ELIMINATED AND MOST PROGRAMS WOULD CONTINUE UNALTERED OR WITH SOME MODIFICATIONS. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT SUPPORT BE WITHDRAWN FOR SALARIES AFTER 5 YEARS, ONE-THIRD EACH YEAR FOR THE NEXT 3 YEARS. (PS)
