Occupational Education: A Challenge to the Two-Year College.
Cone, Bonnie E., Ed.; Vairo, Philip D., Ed.
The purpose of this conference was to present a variety of papers focused on the rationale that providing more and better quality education for the world of work is vital for the South and is of twofold urgency because: (1) Millions of Southerners are ill prepared to seize existing employment opportunities, and (2) Business and industry must have an adequate force of well trained tradesmen and technicians if the South's rapid economic development is to continue. Topics include: Occupational Education in the North Carolina Community College System, Accreditation of Occupational Education Programs, and Preparation of Personnel in Occupational Education. A 100 item selected bibliography on occupational education in a 2-year college is included. (CH)
