A Plan of Organization, Administration, and Elements of Finance for Vocational-Technical Adult Education, Birmingham City School System.
Shelton, John Alton
Designed to help formulate a plan of organization and administration for vocational and technical education and adult education in the Birmingham, Alabama, city schools, this study entailed an extensive literature review on vocational education and administrative matters; a historical review of several Birmingham schools (Paul Hayne School, Mechanical Arts Night School, Olin Vocational School, and recent plans for a technical division in the John Herbert Phillips High School); a survey of existing Birmingham vocational education programs; and an evaluative survey of public school vocational and technical programs in the Hillsborough County System (Tampa, Florida), the Brevard County System (Cocoa Beach), and the DeKalb County System (Decatur, Georgia). In these studies of three outstanding Florida and Georgia programs, reactions were obtained from vocational personnel as to the effectiveness of certain administrative processes. The resulting Birmingham plan, based on a stated rationale as well as on the literature and program reviews, included certain elements of finance to point up increase Federal financial participation in vocational education.
