Vocational-Technical Education in New Mexico. Work Project No. 7.
A design for the future of vocational and technical education was developed utilizing existing situations, manpower development data, and vocational-technical enrollments as supporting evidence. Major recommendations were for--(1) extending some form of vocational education into the grade and junior high schools, (2) implementing the cluster concept for low ability student occupational education, vocational education and technical education, (3) extension of cooperative part-time programs into the trade, agricultural, service, and health areas, (4) development of counselor inservice training programs, and (5) expansion of area vocational-technical centers. Program effectiveness must be evaluated according to the percentage of trainees who work at the occupation for which they are trained, how well the trainees do in their respective occupations, and how well the trainees as individuals are satisfied with the training they receive.
