Review and Synthesis of Literature on Residential Schools in Vocational and Technical Education. Information Series No. 31.
Warmbrod, Catharine P.
Residential vocational school programs have been authorized in federal legislation, and a few have been established in spite of the lack of appropriated funds. The three acts in federal legislation of primary importance to residential schools are the Vocational Education Act of 1963, and 1968 Amendements and the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. The Job Corps, as created by the 1964 Act, involved operating residential schools, and offers data on many aspects of the problem. Other examples of residential schools revewed are the Hashell Institute in Kansas, Mahoning Valley Vocational School in Ohio, and Mayo State Vocational School in Kentucky. Residential schools provide a healthy learning and social environment for the urban disadvantaged, and an opportunity for youth in remote rural areas to receive vocational training. The residential vocational school can fill a gap in our present educational system and can play a much larger role than is currently being considered. State governments, therefore, should incorporate residential schools in their plans for vocational education. (Author/JS)
