Eaddy, Vanik S.
The central purpose of Institute III was to bring together a task force of vocational and related personnel serving rural areas throughout the United States to consider the modification of existing programs to meet the changing needs of rural people. Specific objectives were (1) to identify and assess the educational and vocational training needs of rural youth and adults; (2) to develop a framework for organizing and developing vocational curriculum, courses of study, and units of instruction designed to meet the needs of rural people; (3) to determine the appropriate human, physical, and financial resources needed to conduct vocational education programs; (4) to develop precision in selecting and using the most effective educational technology in planning and conducting these programs; and (5) to plan ways to secure the cooperation and coordination of school personnel, parents, businessmen, and others for vocational education programs. Institute methods and procedures, major presentations and working papers, and conclusions and recommendations are included in this report. (JH)
