The Carl D. Perkins Applied Vocational and Technology Education Act Amendments (Perkins Act) targets the single parent and homemaker populations for vocational education services and activities. This report presents enrollment statistics from New Jersey secondary and adult occupational enrollment and single parent/homemaker programs offered through the Perkins Act set aside for 1993-94. Data organized by occupational cluster did not show any significant trend toward increasing the number of males or females in work programs not traditional for their genders, but program data for set aside programs showed significant numbers of students, single parents, and displaced homemakers enrolled in occupational programs nontraditional for their gender. A trend toward gender balance was seen in secondary marketing, vocational home economics, and business management clusters. Adult student enrollment was also tending toward more balance in marketing areas, vocational home economics, and computer and information science. Includes an extensive list of recommendations for future career training programs. (Contains 1 table and 15 figures.) (SLD)
