IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUMENTS FOR A STUDY OF THE EXPECTATIONS AND PERCEPTIONS OF THE STATE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION AGENCIES AND THEIR INFLUENCE UPON LOCAL PROGRAMS.
LEE, ALLEN
THE PURPOSES OF THIS PROJECT WERE (1) TO MAKE A THOROUGH REVIEW OF THE PERTINENT LITERATURE OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION, (2) DEVELOP, AND TEST INSTRUMENTS DESIGNED TO FACILITATE A CONTEMPLATED MAJOR STUDY OF THE EXPECTATIONS AND PERCEPTIONS OF THE ROLES OF STATE VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION AGENCIES AND THE INFLUENCE WHICH THESE DEPARTMENTS HAVE UPON LOCAL SCHOOLS AND TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS. A STANDARDIZED INSTRUMENT AND FORMAT FOR ITS ADMINISTRATION WERE DEVELOPED. INITIAL RESPONSES TO THE INSTRUMENT TENDED TO INDICATE THAT THERE IS A TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND CHANGE. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THIS LEADERSHIP-CHANGE DIMENSION IS DISCRETE, BUT RATHER IS PART OF A CONTINUUM OF ACTIVITIES. THIS CONTINUUM MAY BE DESCRIBED AS HAVING TWO POLES--THE LEADERSHIP CHANGE DIMENSION AND THE REGULATION-INSPECTION DIMENSION. MOREOVER, IT APPEARS THAT THE INSTRUMENT DOES DIFFERENTIATE AMONG GROUPS OF RESPONDENTS CONCERNING THE ROLE OF THE STATE DIVISION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND DOES PROVIDE SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF NEEDED CHANGE AS PERCEIVED BY RESPONDENTS.
