Research and Implementation in Vocational Education.
Law, Gordon F.
Educational research occupies a pivotal position as educators move to meet growing social challenges. Educational change must be a logical outcome of systematic, controlled, empirical, and critical investigation. Improvement of research is dependent upon increased interaction of research specialists and vocational educators. Some major recommendations concerned project review, the need for greater dissemination of research data, and the guarantee of full amounts of research funds offered by public laws. The vocational education amendments of 1968 designated use of research funds for: (1) research in vocational education, (2) training programs for research dissemination, (3) experimental, developmental, and pilot programs for projects, (4) demonstration and dissemination projects, (5) development of new vocational education curriculums, and (6) development of programs for new careers and occupations. Areas of proposed research were: (1) philosophical foundations of vocational education, (2) the process of vocational education, (3) preparation of professional personnel, (4) reorganization of the high school curriculum, (5) post-secondary development, (6) vocational guidance and curriculum development, (7) evaluation of vocational education, and (8) vocational education needs for girls and women.
