RONEY, MAURICE W.; BRADEN, PAUL V.
MAJOR FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF A STATEWIDE STUDY OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES FOR YOUTH AND ADULTS WHO HAVE LEFT HIGH SCHOOL AND NEED OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION AND SUGGESTIONS FOR A MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM ARE PRESENTED.

PRIORITY NEEDS IN DEVELOPING A STATE SYSTEM OF OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION WERE--STATEWIDE PLANNING, SEPARATE FUNDING, VERTICAL STRUCTURE OF OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION, AND A SYSTEM OF MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT, TO INCLUDE MANPOWER RESEARCH, INDUSTRIAL PLANNING SERVICES, AND OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION. TRENDS IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION, THE PRESENT OCCUPATIONAL SYSTEM AND OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS, COSTS AND RETURNS OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION, GRADUATE MOBILITY, EMPLOYMENT PATTERNS, AND THOSE BEST SERVED BY OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL ARE DISCUSSED.
