Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
The Vocational Education Amendments of 1968 extend the work of the 1963 amendments, but the emphasis has changed from occupations to people. National and state advisory councils are required. In addition each state must submit a plan consisting of administrative policies and procedures and an annual and 5-year program plan. Part of the authorized funds are allocated to permanent programs in cooperative vocational as well as consumer and homemaking education, while the remainder is allocated to the permanent programs of research and training in the area of curriculum development and personnel training. Programs in work-study, residential schools, and exemplary projects have been authorized for a limited period. States participating in the program must meet certain requirements in providing federal funds for vocational education programs. (SB)
