Plan for Comprehensive Vocational, Technical and Adult Post-Secondary Education Services to Wisconsin through 1980.
Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison.
This is a description of Wisconsin's vocational, technical, and adult education (VTAE) system designed to provide delivery of occupational education through comprehensive districts. It is intended for use by legislators, vocational educators, and policy makers. The system plan, divided into five sections, provides in the first section the basis for vocational education with the establishment and purpose of the system and its unique mission and philosophy. In section 2 the educational values to be derived from vocational, technical, and adult education are described, and the goals of Wisconsin's VTAE system are identified. The goals are predicated upon the system's philosophy, legislative intent, the State Board's mission and policies, and the State Board and district boards' shared-powers principle. The third section presents issues and concerns which face the system and which have direct bearing on the delivery of services. Issues are presented, and current practices and alternative future methods of approach to the issues are discussed. Section 4 describes the projected needs for expansion of vocational, technical, and adult education services to Wisconsin citizens. In the last section on implementation, the concept of comprehensiveness is introduced by establishing criteria for a detailed district profile to be developed by each district to meet statewide goals.
