YOU AND RESEARCH.
SIMPSON, ELIZABETH
RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF STATE STAFF, TEACHER EDUCATORS, DIRECTORS, SUPERVISORS, COORDINATORS, AND TEACHERS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. RESEARCH IS IMPORTANT IN EVERY ASPECT OF MODERN LIVING, BUT IT IS VITAL IN THE VOCATIONAL AND PRACTICAL ARTS FIELDS WHERE MANY QUESTIONS, MANY PROFOUNDLY AFFECTING POLICIES, REMAIN UNANSWERED. THE SMALL AMOUNT OF RESEARCH PRODUCED IN THE VOCATIONAL FIELD HAS BEEN DUE TO ITS NEWNESS AND TO THE LACK OF COMPETENCE OF PERSONNEL IN RESEARCH PROCEDURES. CONTINUOUS RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO DETERMINE THE MOST SATISFACTORY TECHNIQUES, ORGANIZATION, CONTENT, AND PROCEDURES IN TEACHING, SUPERVISION, AND ADMINISTRATION. FEDERAL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACTS HAVE MADE SOME PROVISION FOR RESEARCH ACTIVITY, AND DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION STUDIES AND PUBLICATIONS HAVE BEEN USEFUL, BUT VAST AREAS STILL NEED TO BE STUDIED. RESEARCH COULD RESULT IN ANSWERS TO PROBLEMS SUCH AS EFFECT OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE ON VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, STUDENT SELECTION, TRAINING OF ADULT WORKERS, TEACHER TRAINING, AND NEEDS OF THE HANDICAPPED. RESEARCH IN THE FIELD WILL PROSPER WHEN EACH MEMBER OF THE PROFESSION CONSIDERS IT HIS RESPONSIBILITY AND PRIVILEGE TO PROMOTE AND ENGAGE IN RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTATION AND USE RESEARCH FINDINGS IN HIS EVERYDAY WORK.
