Vocational-Technical Education Program Development for Persons with Special Needs by States. Progress Report.
Division of Vocational and Technical Education, BAVT.
To assess the status and show the progress of vocational education for persons with special needs since the 1968 report, each state, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands submitted reports of their vocational education plans and accomplishments. A significant change since the 1968 report is the increase of states, from 17 to 22, which have full-time supervisors of programs for persons with special needs. There was a decrease from 23 to 17 in the number of states having part-time supervisors. The amount of funds for vocational education from state and local sources increased from 74.5 percent in 1968 to 78.2 percent in 1969. States report a total of 101,389 continuing instructional programs, 9,209 programs to be expanded, and 4,129 new programs. Regular or comprehensive high schools comprise 92 percent of the total number of schools, and junior colleges comprise 2.6 percent. Enrollment is expected to increase from 8,259,782 to 11,605,461 in the fiscal years 1969-1973. The document includes summaries of the state report. Data tables summarizing major program developments and directories of state officials, state directors, and executive officers are appended. (SB)
