A Program of Research and Development For Tennessee Designed to Bring Together All Available Research Resources to Support A Continuing Program of Vocational Education. Final Report.
Towne, Douglas C.
This report described the development and organization of the Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) in July 1966 which was designed to unite all research efforts and resources to support a continuing vocational education program in Tennessee. Financial support was provided by the Bureau of Research of the United States Office of Education, the Tennessee Division of Vocational and Technical Education, and the University of Tennessee. The major priorities were information dissemination, research, and development of research throughout Tennessee. The project was fairly successful in information dissemination and research but was not able to stimulate much research in the State. During the first year a rational base of operation was established. However, in the second and third years financial problems severely hampered the efforts of the RCU. (BC)
