The Implications of Job Opportunities in Transportation for Priorities in Vocational-Technical Education. Working Paper.
Teeple, John; Kenadjian, Berdj
Creating and operating an efficient transportation system in the 1970's will generate employment for 14 million persons in all occupations. As transportation methods become more sophisticated, so will the skills required of those who work in that field, and vocational technical education must plan for present needs and future developments. Secondary schools need to educate, train and guide more disadvantaged young persons to enter the skilled and semi-skilled blue collar occupations of the transportation work force. To meet this challenge, vocational education needs cooperative work-study programs, strong vocational counseling and placement programs, and expansion of junior and community college programs and general vocational-technical education programs.
