Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
THE PANEL OF CONSULTANTS ON VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, APPOINTED IN OCTOBER 1961 TO REVIEW AND EVALUATE EXISTING NATIONAL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION LEGISLATION AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPROVING AND REDIRECTING VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, SUBMITTED THIS REPORT IN NOVEMBER 1962. A MAJOR CONCERN WAS TO STUDY THE STRENGTHS AND LIMITATIONS OF THE LOCAL-STATE-FEDERAL PROGRAMS, INCLUDING THE IMPLICATIONS OF AUTOMATION, TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCE, POPULATION MOBILITY, DISCRIMINATION, URBANIZATION, AND PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION. MAJOR DIVISIONS OF THE REPORT ARE (1) REVIEW, (2) EVALUATION, (3) IMPROVEMENT AND REDIRECTION, AND (4) ROLE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THE PANEL'S GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS WERE THAT VOCATIONAL EDUCATION MUST--(1) OFFER TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES TO THE 21 MILLION NONCOLLEGE GRADUATES WHO WILL ENTER THE LABOR MARKET IN THE 1960'S, (2) PROVIDE TRAINING OR RETRAINING FOR WORKERS WHOSE SKILLS AND TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE MUST BE UPDATED AND WORKERS WHOSE JOBS WILL DISAPPEAR, (3) MEET THE CRITICAL NEED FOR HIGHLY SKILLED CRAFTSMEN AND TECHNICIANS, (4) EXPAND VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL TRAINING PROGRAMS CONSISTENT WITH EMPLOYMENT POSSIBILITIES AND NATIONAL ECONOMIC NEEDS, AND (5) MAKE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES EQUALLY AVAILABLE TO ALL.
