Policy Choices in Vocational Education [and] Technical Appendix.
Institute for the Future, Menlo Park, CA.
This report examines the impact of changes in the vocational education environment that are likely to be important to policymakers over the next fifteen years. It contains forecasts of a number of trends that will be of significance to vocational educators, an analysis of the policy implications of those trends in the education environments, and an assessment of how vulnerable policy decisions might be to further changes. The report is divided into three parts. Part 1 describes likely changes in the external environment that will be important influences on vocational education. Areas discussed include demography, the labor force, the economy, societal expectations, and education. Part 2 focuses on the implications of these environmental changes on vocational education and on the policy changes planners in vocational education will face. Part 3 analyzes the likely impact on planning of alternate environmental outcomes. A technical appendix contains actual trend forecasts and a detailed listing of assumptions. (LRA)
