RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION.
BERTOLAET, FREDERICK
THE MANY ACTIVITIES RESULTING FROM THE RECENT EMPHASIS UPON IMPROVING EDUCATION SHOULD CONCERN THE MAJOR PROBLEMS, RESEARCH TOPICS, AND PRIORITIES IDENTIFIED THROUGH A SUGGESTED SYSTEM OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION BOOKKEEPING IN WHICH RESULTS ARE REVIEWED BY APPROPRIATE STAFF AND RESOURCE PERSONNEL FROM BUSINESS, INDUSTRY, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES. THE FOLLOWING AREAS OF CONCERN WERE IDENTIFIED AT A NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN 1956--(1) COMMUNITY COOPERATION FOR MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT, (2) PREPARATION FOR THE WORLD OF WORK--WHAT BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY WANT FROM VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND WHAT THE SCHOOLS SHOULD DO, (3) VOCATIONAL EDUCATION--PARTNER IN LABOR DEVELOPMENT, AND (4) VOCATIONAL PREPARATION FOR INNER-CITY YOUTH. THESE AREAS CONTAIN PROBLEMS OF A RESEARCHABLE NATURE. "IN TODAY'S SELLER'S MARKET HOW FAR HAVE THE STANDARDS OF EMPLOYMENT SLIPPED," IS SUGGESTED AS ONE OF 16 QUESTIONS WHICH COULD BE ANSWERED THROUGH A DESCRIPTIVE SURVEY. ONE OF 12 EXAMPLES SUITABLE FOR DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS IS, "INDUSTRY CAN SEND CRAFTSMEN, TECHNICIANS, AND RESEARCH PERSONNEL INTO THE SCHOOLS FOR TEACHING PURPOSES." AN EXAMPLE FROM 10 SUGGESTIONS OF RESEARCH IN MODIFYING ORGANIZATION OR PRACTICE IS, "CAN THE PRESENCE OF WORK CONDITIONING COUNTERACT THE EFFECT OF THE POOR FAMILY'S ATTITUDE ON THEIR CHILDREN AND THE ABSENCE OF OBJECTIVES OR GOALS COUPLED WITH THE LACK OF DIGNITY ON THE PART OF THESE YOUTH." SUGGESTIONS FOR BASIC RESEARCH CONCERN THE MOTIVATION OF MINORITY GROUPS, PERSONALITY DEFECTS AND MENTAL HEALTH RELATIVE TO EMPLOYMENT PREPARATION, COMMUNICATION DISABILITIES OF THE DISADVANTAGED, AND TRANSFERABILITY OF WORK HABITS AND ATTITUDES.
