Perlberg, A.; And Others
This study attempts to solve the problem of Israel's shortage of qualified teachers for vocational and technical schools by analyzing the problems contained in their preparation, and by suggesting an appropriate program of studies for them, along with recommendations for its effective use. Analysis of the general as well as the vocational and technical educational system in Israel provides a basis for an evaluation of the teacher preparation for vocational and technical education in that country. The problems in Israel of vocational teachers' certification requirements, the status of vocational education, and the sources and recruitment of vocational and technical teachers, are considered in the program that is recommended for technical teachers in engineering and related subjects in electronics and mechanical engineering. Specific recommendations include a need to raise the status of the vocational teacher, to stress scientific and technical subject matter mastery, and to offer occupational experience along with professional education preparation.
