A Guide for the Development, Implementation, and Administration of Exemplary Programs and Projects in Vocational Education.
Bottoms, Gene; Matheny, Kenneth B.
This guide discusses the purposes as well as priorities and potential of the Exemplary Programs and Project Section of the 1968 amendments to the Vocational Education Act, describes considerations in developing exemplary programs at all educational levels, and suggests administrative strategies for program and project implementation. Some major recommendations are: (1) Special attention should be given to the vocational needs of noncollege bound high school graduates, dropouts, and handicapped youth, (2) Vocational education should be structured as a developmental and sequential process from elementary through postsecondary and adult vocational programs, (3) Schools should assume responsibility for all students until they successfully make the transition from school to work, (4) Guidelines for programs and projects should be student centered, and (5) Responsibility for the administration of exemplary programs should include the functions of priority determination, consultation, management, coordination, and dissemination.
