A Master Plan of Research, Developmental and Exemplary Activities in Vocational and Technical Education.
Illinois Professional and Curriculum Development Unit for Vocational and Technical Education, Springfield.
Some of the major concerns of education stem from the fact that young men and women leave our educational system without sufficient skills to survive in the world of work. Vocational education has a vital role to play in solving the problems related to this situation. The staff at this Research and Development Unit believes the problems can best be solved through planned change strongly based on research and development activities. To facilitate the needed change and to achieve maximum results in meeting individual and manpower needs, a workable model of research, developmental, and exemplary activity must be employed. This, in turn, can be followed by the use of a master plan for the implementation of new programs. Priority areas identified for research and developmental activities are: (1) K-14 coordination and articulation, (2) educational programs in all occupational areas, (3) programs for the disadvantaged and handicapped students, (4) inservice training to update instructors, and (5) comprehensive evaluative techniques for the programs offered.
