A Master Plan for Occupational Education in Metropolitan Denver. Position Paper.
Metropolitan State Coll., Denver, CO.
In presenting a complete program of occupational education for the Denver metropolitan area, this proposal offers 12 criteria for consideration in conjunction with a particular occupational need. The purpose of the criteria is to provide guidelines for determining in which level of school a program should be offered. The criteria include factors such as age of the students, length of time required, faculty availability, facilities needed and available, what related programs are available, accessibility, size of school, nature of related training needed, and field experience. Illustrations of clusters or families of occupations covering the spectrum of preparation from high school through 4 years of college are provided. The recommendations include the need for vertical articulation--that is, the planning of a sequence of programs from high school through junior college and 4-year programs. (CH)
