Reorienting Vocational Education. Policy Papers in Human Resources and Industrial Relations No. 7.
Mangum, Garth L.
The Vocational Education Act of 1963 represented the first reconsideration of vocational education since 1917, and was the immediate product of a panel of consultants who found that vocational education was insensitive to changes in the labor market and to the needs of the various segments of the population. This report, an evaluation of that act, is part of a larger project to evaluate federal manpower policies and programs, and much of the data and evaluation is similar to that found in the congressional report (VT 007 877). The report covers: (1) Origin and Achievements of the 1963 Act, (2) The Status of Vocational Education, (3) Innovations in Vocational Education, and (4) Reorienting Vocational Education. This last section includes the five operational principles drawn up by the Advisory Council on Vocational Education, and their recommendations for a system of employment based on these principles.
