This annual report provides an overview of the status of vocational education during school year 1980-81. It includes final data for school year 1979-80 obtained through the Vocational Education Data System (VEDS), the national vocational education reporting and accounting system.

Data are from the National Center for Education Statistics, United States Department of Education. Part 2 of the report focuses on vocational education's responsiveness to and impact on national needs for economic revitalization, defense preparedness, high technology, inner-city and rural initiatives, agriculture, domestic energy and mineral production, and entrepreneurship. Each national need is first discussed, and then vocational education's response, including programs, training, services, and (research) studies, is described.
