A Survey of Industrial Arts Teacher Education and Technical/Technology Graduates of Murray State University with Implications for Curriculum Revision.
Winters, Kenneth Wayne
Responses from 195 (89.4 percent) of 218 graduates during 1965-69 provided information which related to the present status and effectiveness of the industrial arts teacher education and the industrial technical/technology programs at Murray State University. Conclusions were: (1) 90 percent of the teacher education graduates and 60 percent of the technical/technology graduates may work toward an advanced degree at some time during their career, (2) Technical/technology graduates will most often be employed in positions entitled Industrial Engineer, (3) Industrial arts teacher education graduates will more commonly be expected to teach industrial arts either full-time or part-time at the high school level, (4) The extreme gap between salaries of teacher education graduates and technical/technology graduates is closing slightly, (5) Many graduates of both programs may decide to leave their field and enter unrelated occupations, (6) Graduates of both programs see the need and make recommendations for changes in the industrial education curriculum, (7) Both programs are compatible and may operate within the same department, and (8) It may be expected that there will be comparable numbers transferring from either program to the other. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Northern Colorado. (GR)
