A Study of Procedures Utilized in Planning Occupational Education Programs in Selected Florida Junior Colleges.
Boyle, Frederick Henry
This study is concerned with Florida's junior college programs for employment preparation. Its purpose is to list all the procedures used to plan vocational-technical programs and to discover which might be used by other junior colleges, to compare program planning procedures at the state and junior college levels, and to make recommendations for improved program planning. Ten Florida junior colleges were visited; the president and the director of vocational-technical education were interviewed. The president of each college provided the author with a number of resource materials. In the Florida State Department of Education, selected personnel were asked to outline procedures used by state agencies in assisting junior colleges to plan occupational programs. The study focused on planning procedures for assessing the need for occupational education, for planning curricula to meet this need, and for evaluating the adequacy of on-going programs. It was shown that no junior college has the resources to undertake all the planning procedures and research studies necessary for adequate planning in occupational education. Extensive cooperation between state agencies and individual junior colleges will be required for more adequate planning. (MS)
