Review and Synthesis of Research and Developmental Activities Concerning State Advisory Councils on Vocational Education. Information Series No. 22.
Clary, Joseph Ray
State Advisory Councils on Vocational Education have been appointed in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands in compliance with the Vocational Education Amendments (VEA) of 1968. This report is designed as a summarization, synthesis, and analysis of literature on research and developmental activities of these new Councils. According to the specifications of the amendments, the Councils consist of 12-35 persons who are appointed by the governor, or in some states by the State Board. Functions and responsibilities include advising the State Board on the development and administration of the state plan for vocational education, evaluating programs, services, and activities under the state plan, and submitting an annual report through the State Board to the U.S. Commissioner of Education and the National Advisory Council. Few research studies concerning the Councils have been conducted, and the first reports from the Councils are currently being prepared. Needed research areas and questions on the role of and evaluation performed by the Councils are listed. (SB)
