This evaluation report contains a series of articles on vocational and technical education encompassing the 1983-84 school year. The articles, collectively, are intended to give an overall picture of vocational and technical education programs in South Carolina. The lead article on technical education strongly urges several changes to bring about improvements in the technical education delivery system. An analysis is provided of the results of the evaluation of local programs conducted during the year by the State Office of Vocational Education. An article on vocational education enrollments and another on technical education report that secondary-level vocational education enrollments were essentially the same as in the previous year, while technical education experienced a decline in enrollments. The next article details 1983-84 expenditures of Federal funds for vocational education. With full awareness of the importance of the Education Improvement Act of 1984 (EIA), the State Advisory Council on Vocational and Technical Education offers some reactions to several features of the EIA as they specifically affect vocational education. Another brief article also reflects the EIA as the Council projects major Council concerns and activities for 1984-85. Recommendations to the State Board of Education and to the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education are provided as are the responses by the two boards to the Council's recommendations of the previous Evaluation Report.
