Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. Public Law 90-576. Third Report.
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
The focus of the third report of the National Advisory Council is on effectively preparing the disadvantaged for full participation in society. The United States has developed into a technological society with no place for the uneducated, unskilled individual. Though the present educational system works well for the majority, 20 percent of the population is now excluded because of inadequate educational opportunity. The primary reason this nation has not yet established a society in which there is equal opportunity to learn and work is that it has not yet tried. To achieve individual potential, the nation should: (1) recognize that employment is an integral part of education by establishing an employment agency in every secondary school, including part-time employment in the curriculum, and providing further education for the dropout, (2) give priority to programs for the disadvantaged without separating them from the mainstream of education, (3) encourage parents and students to participate in the development of vocational programs, and (4) establish residential schools for those who need them most.
