Testimony Presented to the House Subcommittee on Appropriations for Education and Labor, and Summary.
Lee, Arthur M.
The present level of federal spending for secondary vocational students is roughly $100 million. However, in order to achieve vocational education's goals requiring a doubling of enrollment in the early 1970's, another $100 million is needed in federal funds. This is only $25 per student, compared to $1,500 spent for each retrained dropout. These additional funds would be used most efficiently if research funds were appropriated rather than being put in as a line item. The risks involved in research are preferable to the certain waste of misguided planning. (BH)
