Concurrent Work-Education; Programs in the 50 States, 1965-66.
Schill, William John
To describe concurrent work-education programs in each of the 50 states, data were solicited from each state office by personal visit and from individual school districts by mailed questionnaire. Reports were made to the U.S. Office of Education by the states and reports made by individual school districts to state offices were utilized. Some findings were: (1) Mode enrollment in distributive education programs was 20 students, with a significant portion of the programs clustered in cities over 50,000, (2) The mode enrollment in business education programs was 18 students with programs concentrated in cities over 50,000 population, (3) The mode enrollment in trade and industrial cooperative programs was 25 students concentrated primarily in industrial centers, (4) Diversified occupations showed no relationship to population density and showed a mode student enrollment of 25, (5) 75 percent of the cooperative agriculture programs enrolled 12 or fewer students, (6) There were 2,451 schools with cooperative programs but no work study programs, and 1,823 schools with work study programs and no cooperative programs, and (7) Two-thirds of the schools with cooperative work-education programs had only one offering. Descriptions of student and program characteristics and a bibliography are included. A preliminary draft is available at VT 003 561. (DM)
