Improving Vocational Education in Post-High School Institutions. Final Report.
MacArthur, Earl W.
Four ongoing programs in postsecondary vocational-technical education were examined in a national institute attended by 59 representatives from 31 states. Institutions reporting programs were: (1) Los Angeles Trade and Technical College, California, (2) Washtenaw Community College, Ann Arbor, Michigan, (3) Rockingham Community College, Wentworth, North Carolina, and (4) State University Agricultural and Technical College, Alfred, New York. Topics covered for each institution included: (1) administrative structure, (2) curriculum development, (3) student recruitment and characteristics, (4) student personnel services, (5) facility design and development, and (6) financing. Using the 16 conference objectives as a guide, study groups reported recommendations for improvement of post-high school vocational education. Evaluation was accomplished by a structured questionnaire from all participants and by written evaluations from four regional representatives. Speech and group discussion, texts, and sample conference forms and materials are appended. (SB)
