Educating for Work. A Report on the Current Scene in Vocational Education and The Committee's Conclusions. National Committee Paper No. 2.
Draper, Dale C.
To explore questions such as: (1) What kind of vocational training is really needed? (2) How much should be specific, and how much general? (3) At what levels of the educational ladder can vocational content best be inserted? (4) How much can be done within the present framework of our secondary schools, and what sort of new institutions are required? Dale C. Draper undertook a fact-finding study in which he read widely, interviewed many key persons, and visited various types of vocational centers. His report, in the first major section of the document, covers (1) basic legislation, (2) students to be served, (3) the manpower situation, (4) curriculum innovations and issues, (5) vocational education for unemployed youth, and (6) the administration of vocational education. Also included are the Committee's 10 conclusions after reviewing the report. Among needs identified were: (1) preparation by the public educational system of all young people for effectiveness in the world of work, (2) provision of a complete program of vocational education beginning when the individual enters school, and (3) the necessity of special efforts on behalf of students who are not achieving in school.
