A Synthesis of Activities Leading to the Enactment of the Vocational Education Act of 1963. Final Report.
Ellis, Mary Louise
The Vocational Education Act of 1963 was an apparent outgrowth of economic conditions and societal needs which existed in the United States in the late 1950's and early 1960's. The nation's most urgent domestic problem was unemployment while paradoxically millions of jobs which required skilled workers continued unfilled. This study was concerned with the historical development of issues and activities which led to the enactment of this important legislation. Based on an examination of written source documents, such as the Administration's education messages to the Congress, the overall purpose of this research was to bring together in one document those positions and proceedings associated with the design and adoption of this law. This report was also submitted as Ed.D. dissertation to Oklahoma State University. (Author/JS)
