An Assessment of Vocational Education Needs of the Disadvantaged and Handicapped in Kentucky. Final Report.
Bayne, G. Keith; And Others
Presented is the final report of a project to determine the number of disadvantaged and handicapped high school students in Kentucky, where their needs for vocational education and rehabilitation are not being adequately served, and the approximate cost of implementing each suggested program, service, or activity. Chapters cover introductory information on classification, misclassification, legislation, and litigation; objectives of the project (including the development of a data gathering instrument); the methods used for defining the disadvantaged and handicapped, selecting the sample population, instrument development, data analysis and processing, and collecting data on programs and services provided; project results (this chapter makes up the bulk of the document with tables showing statistical data); conclusions (including that projected figures indicate that 25,285 disadvantaged and 14,419 handicapped students feel that training opportunities are not available for them); and recommendations (such as offering a more diversified selection of occupational areas). Among appended materials are the student survey instrument, the regional director questionnaire, and special vocational programs unit data. (SBH)
