Background Characteristics of Occupational Education Directors in New Two-Year Colleges.
Frankie, Richard J.; Miller, Malvern
The purposes of this report were to determine the qualifications of occupational educational administrators and to evaluate the relationship between the stated requirements and the actual backgrounds of those holding the position. The sample included 62 institutions, representing 24 states, that had been in operation five years or less and offered a minimum of five occupational programs. A questionnaire, focusing on the occupational experience, educational administrative experience, educational teaching experience, and formal education of the college's occupational educational administrator, was mailed to each institution; results were based on the 47 usable returns. A summary of the responses to the questionnaire, as well as a listing of the stated desirable background requirements pertinent to the study, were provided. A comparison of stated requirements with actual backgrounds showed the administrators were weakest in the areas of meaningful occupational and vocational teaching experience. In general, however, it was concluded that the actual backgrounds of occupational administrators at the new 2-year colleges compared favorably with the experiences that were stated to be desirable.
