Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Div. of Adult and Vocational Research.
This state-by-state report shows expansion and improvement of both facilities and programs as a direct result of the Vocational Education Act of 1963. Vocational-technical schools are becoming more accessible to men, women, and youth. At least 125 new schools are under construction, 209 additional ones are planned, and 62 existing centers have been designated as area schools. Thirty-three states report substantial additional appropriations for educational programs. Over 40 percent of the funds allocated to the states was used for construction of new facilities during the first 9 months of operation under the Act. Thirty percent of the federal funds went into secondary vocational education programs, 14 percent to post-secondary, 8 percent to adult education, 5 percent to ancillary services, and about 2.5 percent to programs for persons with special needs. National enrollment in vocational and technical schools totaled 5,263,200 for 1965, an increase of 15.3 percent over 1964. (MM)
