New York City Regional Annual Plan (1976-77) and Long Range Plans (1977-81) for... Comprehensive Occupational Education.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Center for Career and Occupational Education.
Within the context of occupational education planning, this report proposes a region-wide coordinated system that is responsive to the needs of all segments of the city's population, as well as to the specific needs of each individual. Occupational education, it is indicated, will be successful in the city's high schools only if it emcompasses career education, that is, the blending of work experience with regular school courses and programs. Supportive and training services are proposed for out-of-school youth and adults, especially for minority youth who suffer disproportionately higher unemployment rates and need greater opportunities in skills development. Goals, objectives, and activities for occupational and career education are provided, and factors such as staffing, curriculum, facilities, community relations, and counseling are discussed. Tables provide data on occupational programs on the secondary level, occupational training for adults and college students, enrollment by sex in occupational education, and student enrollment. (WP)
