Occupational Education-Planning and Programming. Volume One.
Recommendations, conclusions, and position papers based on the results of a diagnostic survey conducted six states and 11 communities are reported. They concern: (1) identification of the objectives and goals of occupational education; (2) structuring of alternative programs to achieve them; (3) cost-benefit analysis; and, (4) projections of manpower supply and demand. With the survey findings and the position papers as background, an interdisciplinary conference was held at Airlie with 38 participants including economists, vocational educators, university and research personnel, administrators, systems analysis, and planners to determine the problems associated with planning and programing vocational education. Part I of the report includes: "Major Recommendations and Conclusions," by Arnold Kotz. Part II is concerned with how objectives and goals are determined by States and communities. Objectives identified in the diagnostic survey are discussed. Position papers are: (1) "Objectives and Goals of Occupational Education," by Grant Venn; (2) "Evaluating Vocational Education-Problems and Priorities," by Garth Mangum; and (3) "Problems of Application of the Program Planning and Budgeting System to Education," by Charles Hitch. Part III, concerning alternative programs to achieve occupational education objectives, includes the papers.--(1) An Educational System for the Seventies," by David Bushnell and Robert Morgan; (2) "An Industrial Approach to Occupational Training," by Wilbur Landis; and (3) "Improved Planning for Vocational and Technical Education--A State Directors Perspective," by Robert Worthington; transcripts of discussions following some speeches. A budgeting approach and a bibliography of 111 references used in the project are included. Additional papers are included in volume two (VT 005 642).
