Manpower Education in the North Carolina Appalachian Region.
Hammer, Green, Siler Associates, Washington, DC.
The manpower problem in North Carolina Appalachia, an inadequate supply of skilled labor, is essentially a problem in public school education resulting from deficiencies in basic education and work preparation for non-college-bound youth. For the schools to respond effectively, 4 basic things must happen in public education: (1) Public education must be reoriented to the world of work and occupational preparation with emphasis on traditional general and vocational education. (2) Teacher education must be improved and more teachers provided in the schools. (3) Guidance education must be improved and more counselors provided in the schools. (4) Non-curriculum concerns such as food, clothing, medical and dental care, and psychological and social services must be increased and extended into new areas. It is recommended that a local advisory committee on education undertake continuing examination of the system of public education in each local development district and insure orientation of public education to the world of work.
