Research Visibility: Development of Professional Personnel for Vocational-Technical Education.
Brandon, George L., Ed.
American Vocational Journal, v45 n5 p37-52 May 1970
The professional development of vocational education personnel is becoming a critical issue as a result of the expanding role of vocational education, federal legislation, and an impending teacher shortage. Current efforts to meet this challenge are described in 18 reviews which concern opinion leaders, disadvantaged youth, career development, teacher education, emerging occupations, teaching methods, postsecondary programs, teacher recruitment, dropout prevention, manpower training, performance criteria, preservice education, and national conferences on teacher education. "Plain Talk," a continuing column by the editor, discusses the importance of establishing and implementing educational priorities. The bibliography lists an additional 28 related reports. (CH)
