Indiana State Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Indianapolis.
The Indiana State Advisory Council on Vocational Education (SACVE) endorses opportunities for all Indiana citizens to attain an education that is relevant, understandable, and reasonable. It recommends that secondary and postsecondary resources be combined and committed to mount a coordinated, unified campaign to provide the general public with accurate information concerning vocational/technical education. The state legislature should provide incentives to encourage collaboration rather than maintain funding systems that tend to be divisive. SACVE further recommends that joint regional planning for vocational education currently encouraged by State Board of Vocational and Technical Education grants be established for the entire state. It is recommended that training resources be made avaiiable for regional planners to develop the skills necessary to apply the Indiana collaboration model. SACVE recommends that Indiana undertake an educators-in-industry summer program for counselors and educational administrators. A vocational representative should be included as a resource member of each superintendent's cabinet or top administrative team to complement the expertise already represented in those bodies. SACVE recommends substantially increased state-level financial support for all levels of vocational/technical education. (YLB)
