THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963 WAS ENACTED BY CONGRESS TO OFFER NEW AND EXPANDED VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS TO BRING JOB TRAINING INTO HARMONY WITH THE INDUSTRIAL, ECONOMIC, AND SOCIAL REALITIES OF TODAY AND THE NEEDS FOR TOMORROW. THE ACT IS COMPREHENSIVE. IT IS AVAILABLE TO AND CONCERNED ABOUT UNEMPLOYED AND EMPLOYED WORKERS OF ALL AGES AT ALL LEVELS FOR ALL FIELDS IN BOTH RURAL AND URBAN AREAS. THE ACT REQUIRES EACH STATE AND COMMUNITY TO PLAN FLEXIBLE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS WHICH ARE COMPATIBLE WITH CHANGES OCCURRING IN THE ECONOMY AND THE WORLD OF WORK. IT CANNOT BECOME OBSOLETE--THE MACHINERY FOR KEEPING IT FLEXIBLE AND UP TO DATE IS BUILT INTO IT. IT IS CONCERNED WITH QUALITY EDUCATION.
