Trends in the Distribution of State and Federal Funds for Vocational Education in Minnesota: Fiscal Years 1986 to 1992.
Christenson, Leo; Davis, Joan
This report presents an analysis to determine whether the availability of vocational-technical education in Minnesota meets the intent of the Perkins Act and the needs of Minnesotans. Chapter 1 analyzes both federal and state funding for postsecondary vocational-technical education for fiscal years 1986-92. It describes both Perkins Acts, the governance of the technical college system, and funding and enrollment trends for postsecondary vocational education. Chapter 2 analyzes both the federal and state funding for secondary vocational technical education. Data for fiscal years 1990-92 are combined with data collected and reported previously for fiscal years 1986-89. This chapter discusses governance, appropriations, and enrollment for secondary vocational education. Chapter 3 contains information on the availability of continuous and extension vocational education programs in Minnesota's technical colleges, high schools, and secondary cooperative centers. Chapter 4 lists the conclusions developed by the State Council on Vocational Technical Education on both postsecondary and secondary vocational education after review of the data presented. An epilogue raises some observations and issues that suggest areas for further study and deliberation. Contains 20 references. (YLB)
