Current Developments in Vocational Home Economics Education.
Hurt, Mary Lee, Comp.
Current developments in consumer and homemaking education, vocational home economics, and teacher education have been selected from those presented at the 1969-70 workshops on vocational home economics education sponsored by the Division of Vocational and Technical Education and from home economics personnel in various states. Consumer and homemaking education curriculums are being adapted to consider the dual role of homemaker and job holder, greater attention is being given to professional leadership development, and programs are being revised to give greater emphasis to consumer education, nutrition education, child development, and family life. Changes in programs for youth and adults have led to changes in teacher education at the preservice and inservice levels. Occupational home economics programs will continue to grow as advisory groups from community agencies, businesses, and industries help identify new career opportunities for paraprofessionals in the human service occupations.
