An Analysis of Instructional Apprenticeship Services in Public Schools. Research Project Report.
Rio Hondo Community Coll. District, Whittier, CA.
This report presents data and recommendations of a project to analyze instructional services provided by public schools to California apprenticeship programs. Issues considered are instructional materials, instructional facilities, credit for apprentice classes, registration and interdistrict permits, isolated apprentices, financial support, excess cost agreements, labor-education codes, pre-apprenticeship training, prerequisites, job site training and supplemental instruction, specialized educational leadership, and Educational Advisory Council on Apprenticeship. An introduction lists 10 project objectives; part 1 describes project methodology. Part 2 summarizes data from three primary sources. Questionnaire data are presented as a compilation of responses from four different questionnaires listed as percentages of yes and no answers. Summaries of pertinent respondent comments are provided. Training site interviewee data are presented as a consensus of discussions between consultant and interviewees to supplement questionnaire data and gather perceptions on how public school services to apprenticeship programs can be strengthened. The discussion of the evaluation of instructional materials presents data and opinions collected from instructors, school representatives, and program sponsors. Part 3 contains recommendations predicated upon survey findings. Appendixes, amounting to approximately two-thirds of the report, contain questionnaire data by craft programs. (An executive summary begins the report.) (YLB)
