A NATIONWIDE STUDY OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION AT THE STATE LEVEL. VOLUME ONE. FINAL REPORT.
SWANSON, J. CHESTER
THE OBJECTIVES OF FIVE RELATIVELY INDEPENDENT STUDIES WERE TO DESCRIBE AND INDICATE DIFFERENCES OF ORGANIZATION, PERSONNEL, AND SERVICE IN THE STATES, IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE PERCEPTIONS OF STATE AGENCY ROLES AND FUNCTIONS, ANALYZE ACTIVITIES OF SELECTED PROFESSIONAL STAFF POSITIONS, DESIGN AND FIELD TEST AN INSTRUMENT FOR SELF ANALYSIS OF STATE AGENCIES, AND ANALYZE STATE AND FEDERAL EXPENDITURES FOR VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS. DATA WERE OBTAINED IN VISITS TO THE STATES AND PUERTO RICO THROUGH GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEWS AND RECORDS, AND OTHER DOCUMENTS. CONCLUSIONS INCLUDED--(1) THERE WAS GREAT VARIATION AMONG THE 50 STATES IN THE RATIO OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBERS IN THE STATE AGENCY TO VOCATIONAL TEACHERS, (2) THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION WAS LESS CONFIDENT ABOUT THE JOB IT WAS DOING THAN WAS THE GROUP TO WHICH IT WAS IMMEDIATELY RESPONSIBLE, (3) ALL GROUPS INDICATED THE MAJOR PORTION OF THEIR TIME WAS SPENT PLANNING, CONSULTING, COMMUNICATING, AND TRAVELING, WITH THE MAJOR FOCI PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION AND DEFINITION, AND PROGRAM DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT, AND (4) THE TOTAL EXPENDITURES MORE THAN DOUBLED BETWEEN 1962-63 AND 1965-66. A "FORMAT AND CRITERIA FOR SELF-ANALYSIS BY STATE AGENCIES FOR VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION" WAS DESIGNED, DEVELOPED, PARTIALLY REFINED AND INITIALLY FIELD TESTED. VOLUME II (VT 004 418) CONTAINS THE APPENDIX TO THESE STUDIES. (EM)
