This report consists of five separate parts which bear on the problem of vocational-technical education in the county school district. Part One deals with an analysis of dropouts from the schools of the county during the years of 1960 through 1966. Questionnaires were sent to dropouts, graduates, and parents of both groups. Part Two deals with the vocational and professional interests of currently enrolled students as determined by an instrument devised by the Research Coordinating Unit. Part Three consists of an analysis of the vocational-technical education courses that were offered during 1967 by the county school district in the junior highs, high schools, and adult education. Part Four is an analysis of the employment situation in the county and the eleven western states. Part Five provides a discussion of the on-going programs of vocational education for the county and a series of recommendations directed toward strengthening the programs and providing a more meaningful education experience.
