Vocational and Technical Education; A Comparative Study of Present Practice and Future Trends in Ten Countries. Monographs on Education-6.
Based on information provided by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the respective countries, this study presents a synoptic review of the educational systems in the United States and nine European countries. Some of the trends common to the 10 countries are the emphasis toward integration of vocational education into the general secondary education system, the possibility of student transfer from technician-training establishments to the technological faculties of universities without having to comply with the traditional university requirements of higher secondary education, and the growing cooperation between industry and education. Specimen programs of study for vocational and technical education in the 10 countries are included in the appendixes. (CH)
