Citizens Perceptions and Professional Educators Expectations Regarding the Vocational Citizens Advisory Committee.
McKinney, Floyd Lee
To identify differences in the perceptions of vocational educators and school administrators concerning the functions and operations of the advisory committee and to identify relationships between perceived functions and operations and selected background variables, questionnaires were mailed to advisory committee members, vocational educators, and school administrators associated with six comprehensive Michigan schools. Data analyses included the use of chi square one-way-analysis of variance. An 82.5 percent response yielded these findings: (1) Generally, the respondents were young to middle age, were well educated, but had limited experience in vocational education courses and with advisory committees, (2) Age of respondents, years enrolled in high school vocational education courses, and college courses taken in administration, philosophy, or teaching of vocational education were the most important background variables associated with differences of opinion, and (3) Several differences of opinion were found. The findings suggest that educational programs for both educators and committee members would improve understanding. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to Michigan State University. (Author/SB)
