Use of Industry-Advisory Committees as a Technique for Evaluating Vocational and Technical Education Programs.
Burt, Samuel M.
The use of Industry-Advisory Committees for evaluating specific vocational and technical education programs has long been recommended by vocational educators. Citizen evaluation of public occupational education is probably the most important factor affecting it whereby citizens assign responsibilities for occupational education and administer or withhold funds, personnel, and facilities. This paper describes the strategy being developed in the use of industry-advisory committees for evaluating vocational and technical education in Arkansas including organization of the evaluation committees and guidelines and background information which should be provided for them. The appendixes include the scope of the project for evaluating the vocational-technical programs in Arkansas, functions of the regional advisory councils, and a 3-year program plan for an advisory committee.
