STATE REPORTS OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT, FISCAL YEAR 1966.
Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
SUMMARY REPORTS OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTS IN EACH OF THE 50 STATES AND TERRITORIES DURING 1966 ARE PRESENTED. MORE THAN 200 NEW VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FACILITIES WERE CONSTRUCTED, AND HIGH QUALITY VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IS RAPIDLY BECOMING AVAILABLE FOR THOSE CITIZENS WHO NEED INSTRUCTION TO OBTAIN JOBS OR FOR THOSE WHO MUST IMPROVE THEIR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE TO KEEP THEIR PRESENT JOBS. VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ENROLLMENT IS APPROACHING 5.5 MILLION STUDENTS. THE CONTENT OF THE PROGRAMS IS UNDERGOING SWEEPING CHANGES. A WIDER RANGE OF OCCUPATIONS IS BEING INCLUDED IN CURRICULUMS, EXISTING PROGRAMS ARE EXPANDING TO GIVE MORE IN-DEPTH TRAINING, AND NEW FIELDS ARE BEING OPENED. EXAMPLES OF RECENT TRENDS ARE (1) AN INCREASED NUMBER OF TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN, (2) A REMARKABLE GROWTH IN POST-SECONDARY OFFICE, HEALTH, AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS, (3) MORE TECHNICAL TRAINING FOR HIGHLY SKILLED WORKERS, (4) GREATER NUMBERS ENROLLED IN PROGRAMS FOR THOSE WITH SPECIAL SOCIOECONOMIC NEEDS, (5) INCREASED FUNDS FOR PROGRAMS FOR THE DISADVANTAGED, AND (6) EXPANSION AND DEVELOPMENT OF POST-HIGH SCHOOL AS WELL AS HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS. THE FEDERAL-STATE-LOCAL COOPERATIVE RELATIONSHIP IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CONTINUES TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SUCH AN ADMINISTRATIVE ARRANGEMENT. (WB)
