FACTORS INFLUENCING PERCEPTIONS OF THE IDEAL ADULT VOCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
FRANK, HARRY ELMER, JR.
TO ASCERTAIN THE INFLUENCE OF SELECTED SITUATIONAL AND PERSONAL FACTORS ON THE PERCEPTION OF THE IDEAL ADULT VOCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS, OPINIONNAIRES RETURNED BY 388 VOCATIONAL TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS IN OKLAHOMA PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS WERE STUDIED. OPINIONNAIRES CONTAINED 38 STATEMENTS OF CONDITIONS IDENTIFIED AS RELEVANT TO SUCH A PROGRAM BY A PANEL OF EXPERTS. STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN RESPONSES WERE SOUGHT TO INDICATE FACTORS INFLUENCING PERCEPTIONS. MOST INFLUENTIAL FACTORS APPEARED TO BE (1) HAVING A VOCATIONAL ADULT CURRICULUM IN THE SCHOOL, (2) TEACHING OR ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE, AND (3) HAVING A COMPREHENSIVE ADULT CURRICULUM IN THE SCHOOL. OF SOME INFLUENCE WERE (4) ADMINISTRATIVE OR TEACHING ROLE, (5) PRIOR ACADEMIC TRAINING IN ADULT EDUCATION, (6) SIZE OF SCHOOL, AND (7) BUSINESS AND INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. FORMAL EDUCATION DID NOT INFLUENCE PROGRAM PERCEPTION. THIS DOCTORAL THESIS WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN. 148 PAGES. (AUTHOR/RT)
