A Study of the Educational and Manpower Needs of the Catawba Valley Technical Institute Impact Area.
Sumerell, Craven H.
The purpose of this study was to make a survey of the educational needs of the community served by the Catawba Valley Technical Institute (CVTI), the results of which would serve as a basis for the projection, planning, and revision of the CVTI instructional programs and the planning of physical facilities. In this cooperative venture, the data were collected by the CVTI, and assistance in the design of the study and preparation of the final report was provided by the Research Coordinating Unit. The procedure used was a stratified random sample of the industrial, business, and service complex in the area. Also, high school students and their parents were surveyed, and a public opinion survey was made by a systematic sampling process. Specific conclusions were that there is a trend toward a higher level of education in the impact area, there is a definite need to intensify the public relations program, there is a need for the addition of a 2-year college program parallel to the present program, and there is a need for further study in the area of occupational upgrading.
