Improving Opportunities for Vocational-Technical Education in Montana; Report of a Statewide Survey by a 10-Member Survey Staff.
School Survey Service, Columbus, OH.
In an effort to improve vocational-technical education in Montana, the 1967 legislative assembly requested a private survey to examine public education in the state and make recommendations. Some major conclusions were: (1) Junior and community colleges had little impact on vocational-technical education, (2) The state staff organization was not conducive to program growth and development, (3) The small high school districts in the state limited the growth of vocational-technical education, (4) The contribution of the vocational advisory council was minimal, (5) The educational effort reflected a degree of confusion, lack of communication, and laggardness, (6) Professional and lay groups showed a high level of interest in vocational-technical education, and (7) High school programs were not always geared to current needs in business and industry. Some major recommendations were: (1) the development of increased communication between educational leaders and lay leaders, (2) organization of the state's educational system, (3) development of four to six post high vocational-technical centers covering large geographic areas, (4) more effort and financial resources devoted to planned research, (5) development of an expanded vocational-technical education program, and (6) improvement and clarification of certification requirements.
