Occupational Education for the Public Schools of North Carolina. A Supplementary Report of The Governor's Study Commission on The Public School System of North Carolina.
To suggest some appropriate courses of action in occupational education for the state of North Carolina, a 20-member advisory committee on vocational education undertook a comprehensive study of local administrative units which resulted in 33 recommendations. Some are: (1) that arrangements be provided for regular, systematic and thorough evaluations of occupational education, (2) that a unified state policy for occupational education be developed, (3) that small high schools be replaced by high schools with 750 or more students, (4) that institutions for higher education become more fully involved in providing pre-service education, in-service education, research and development, and public and professional services for occupational education, (5) that the role of the private agencies be more commonly recognized in planning public occupational education programs, (6) that students be held in school long enough to secure the basic and general education required for occupational competency, (7) that suitable programs of occupational education be provided in the junior high schools or middle schools, and (8) that the state board of higher education make an immediate canvas of the need for personnel and arrange for recruitment and training. Ways and means of accomplishing the recommendations are suggested. (DM)
