Vocational and Technical Education in Rural America.
A federal task force of eight visiting education specialists and 13 persons from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and the Office of Education were appointed to develop plans for expanding and improving vocational and technical education in rural America. Information about rural population, poverty, employment, health, and resources was reviewed, and new rural vocational education programs were identified. Recommendations and suggestions for implementation were made concerning the federal, state, and community roles as well as research, exemplary, and personnel development program needed. Some of these include: (1) The Federal Government should establish an effective working relationship with all supportive agencies and organizations to insure access to them, (2) States should determine manpower needs and implications of these needs, (3) Research is needed to provide objective data to use in program development and evaluation, and (4) States should enact laws that will permit students to cross county or state boundaries for specialized training tuition-free.
