Roberts, Roy W.; Hunt, Elizabeth E.
Descriptions of vocational, practical arts, and general adult education programs for an exemplary school curriculum, grades K-12 in Leflore County, Mississippi, are given in this 1969 document. Suggestions include development of an area vocational-technical school designed to supply partially the anticipated manpower needs of this rural county. It is noted that student needs will be met through (1) vocational areas which will include occupational training in agriculture, business, industry, homemaking, and health occupations; (2) practical arts areas which will provide general education exploratory opportunities and home-use competencies in homemaking, industrial arts, agriculture, and business; and (3) general adult education which will provide basic elementary education and courses for high school credit, for general interest, and for civil defense emergencies. This work was prepared under a Title III contract of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AN)
