Model Cities Survey; A Comprehensive Program of Occupational Exploration and Vocational Education, A Conceptual Plan.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Instructional Materials Lab.
Funds made available through the Federal Model Cities Program allowed Denver to develop a conceptual plan for occupational exploration and education. Data needed for this project were collected through an inventory of school programs and industrial training programs and from the Emily Griffith Opportunity School. Additional data pertaining to population and manpower needs of Denver were also gathered to provide the foundation of the conceptual plan. Major recommendations of the study include: (1) Provisions for innovation, development, and change should be incorporated as part of the operational philosophy of the public schools, (2) Community groups should be involved in providing direction in the public schools, (3) Continuing evaluation of school programs is most important, (4) Each high school should be as comprehensive as the student population may justify, and (5) The program of guidance services should include increased vocational guidance.
