Vocational-Technical Facilities for Secondary Schools: A Planning Guide.
Nerden, Joseph T.
Data provided by national agencies indicate that only 15 to 18 percent of all young people who begin school continue on to earn the baccalaureate degree. The others exit from formal education on or before graduation from secondary schools to enter the labor market. Public secondary schools, as well as junior high and elementary schools, must provide at least 85 percent of the students with occupational training. Vocational education facility planning and construction have expanded chiefly through the provisions of the Vocational Education Act of 1963 and the 1968 amendments. Every State is now involved in the planning and construction of modern vocational education facilities. This guidebook on the conception, planning, and implementation of vocational technical facilities contains principles and recommendations to aid planners of such facilities. A bibliography and survey forms are included. (Author)
