Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, Public Law 90-576. Second Report.
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
The second report from the National Advisory Council contains recommendations with respect to comprehensive manpower legislation, Federal support for post-secondary institutions, and the position of vocational education in the administrative organization of the Federal government. The recommendations of the Council arose from concern for: (1) persons who are flowing into the pool of unemployed, as well as those already unemployed or underemployed, (2) directing the disadvantaged into the mainstream of vocational and technical education as career preparation, rather than into separate programs, (3) the use of Federal funds primarily to cover the additional costs of vocational and technical education as career preparation as distinguished from the total costs of such education, and (4) coordination of vocational education as well as manpower programs. The Council recommended that the Federal government should invest in reducing the flow of untrained youth, and recommended three immediate actions to implement this policy. (GR)
