A PREFERRED ORDER FOR STUDYING CURRENT PROBLEMS IN MINNESOTA'S TRADE AND TECHNICAL PROGRAM.
MOSS, JEROME, JR.
THE STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO OBTAIN A CURRENT PRIORITY OF PROBLEMS IN TRADE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN MINNESOTA SUITABLE FOR GUIDING POTENTIAL INVESTIGATORS IN PROBLEM SELECTION AND FOR ASSISTING THE STATE IN DETERMINING ITS ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES FOR RESEARCH. A CONFERENCE OF DIRECTORS AND ASSISTANT DIRECTORS FROM 15 AREA VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS, THE TOTAL TRADE AND TECHNICAL TEACHER TRAINING STAFF, THE DIRECTOR AND ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, AND THE STATE SUPERVISORS IN THIS AND RELATED AREAS DEVELOPED A LIST OF PROBLEMS WHICH APPEARED TO BE LIMITING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE STATE'S PROGRAM. THESE PROBLEMS WERE REPHRASED AND INCORPORATED IN AN OPINIONNAIRE CONTAINING 18 PROBLEM AREAS. THE OPINIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO THE ABOVE GROUPS WITH THE REQUEST TO RANK EACH PROBLEM IN THE ORDER IN WHICH IT SHOULD BE STUDIED. THE PROBLEMS WERE GROUPED IN EIGHT AREAS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT--(1) THE QUESTIONS REFLECT MOST OF THE CURRENT PROBLEMS, (2) THERE IS LITTLE AGREEMENT ON PREFERRED ORDER, (3) THE PROBLEM AREAS IDENTIFIED FOR TRADE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION ARE RELEVANT TO THE FIELDS OF AGRICULTURE, BUSINESS, AND DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION, BUT NOT TO HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION, AND (4) IN SIMILAR STUDIES MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA IDENTIFIED MOST OF THE COMMON PROBLEM AREAS AND ALSO RECOGNIZED PROBLEMS FOR WHICH MINNESOTA HAD NO COUNTERPARTS.
