The need to coordinate the research being done in vocational and technical education is all too apparent. Numerous government agencies, universities, foundations and research centers are among those involved directly or indirectly in this type of research. Puerto Rico sought to maximize the benefits from these research activities by establishing a Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) with the expressed purpose of encouraging, stimulating, coordinating, and disseminating research for the improvement of vocational education. This final report summarizes the projects and activities of the RCU in addition to presenting (1) their plan of organization, (2) the development of their staff, (3) funding and related problems, and (4) future plans.
