What School Administrators Should Know About Vocational Education For Disadvantaged Youth In Rural Areas.
Robinson, Oliver W.; Schmitt, Henry E.
The basic problem facing school administrators, supportive staff personnel, and school boards is how to successfully implement vocational programs for rural disadvantaged youth. Thus, this document was designed to help school administrators review the key administrative concepts relative to this type of vocational education program. The compact nature of the review should provide a ready reference for the practitioner seeking to develop and improve programs in his school and community. Special attention is devoted to (1) Historical Development of Programs, (2) Exemplary Programs and Procedures, (3) School Organization Patterns, (4) Labor, Industry, and School Cooperative Efforts, (5) Developing Professional Personnel, (6) Determining Program Offerings, and (7) Developing, Adapting, and Revising Instructional Resources. The strengths and weaknesses of these programs are also examined. (Author/JS)
