The Appalachian Regional Commission Education Advisory Committee. Interim Report.
Alden, Vernon; And Others
The primary purpose of the Education Advisory Committee is to indicate priorities for the allocation of resources by the Appalachian Regional Commission and states of the region. Planning and study by the Committee has been directed to 4 general areas: pre-school education, elementary and secondary education, higher education, and occupational preparation. Following a discussion of each of the first 3 areas, the major portion of the report is concerned with manpower needs of the region and current programs for occupational preparation since it was felt by the Committee that improvement in this area would have the greatest economic and overall effect on the region. Appendix titles are: A Suggested Way To Relate Employment Trends and Vocational Education Planning; Historical Problems, Definitions, and Critiques of Current National Programs; and Formation and Operations of State Education Committees.
