ERSKINE, EDWARD J.
THE MACOMB ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS SPONSORED A COUNTY SURVEY BY EDUCATORS AND LAY CITIZENS TO DETERMINE THE CURRENT STATUS AND THE FUTURE NEED FOR OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION. DATA WERE COLLECTED ON SUCH VARIABLES AS POPULATION TRENDS, CURRENT AND PROJECTED MANPOWER NEEDS, VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS, OCCUPATIONAL PLANS OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, AND TRAINING NEEDS FOR ENTRY JOBS. THE STUDY COMMITTEE CONCLUDED THAT THE COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGE IS "SOCIETY'S ANSWER TO THE NEED FOR EXPANDED EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY," AND MADE 30 DETAILED RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDING--(1) UPGRADING AND EXPANSION OF OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION IN PRESENTLY EXISTING INSTITUTIONS, (2) REGULAR FOLLOWUP STUDIES BY ALL EDUCATIONAL UNITS, (3) CONTINUING STUDY OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO DETERMINE POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, (4) CONTINUING STUDY OF EMPLOYMENT TRENDS, (5) HIGH SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COLLEGE ARTICULATION, (6) ESTABLISHMENT OF AREA OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION CENTERS, (7) CONCENTRATION OF POST-HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, (8) COORDINATION WITH OTHER COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE DETROIT AREA TO AVOID UNNECESSARY DUPLICATION, AND (9) INVOLVEMENT OF EMPLOYERS AND WORKERS IN EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
