Counselors View Trade and Industrial Education in Wisconsin.
Prichard, Neal W.
This study investigated the attitudes of secondary school guidance counselors toward trade and industrial education, in relation to individual characteristics, experience, knowledge about the program, and type of program in operation. Usable responses on the School Counselor's Inventory for Vocational Trade and Industrial Education were made by 217 of 307 counselors listed in the Wisconsin Official School Directory. Significantly better attitudes were found among older counselors, whereas knowledge was greatest among counselors who were English majors or had at least 6 years experience with their present employers. Both attitudes and knowledge were higher among counselors who lived in communities offering evening programs in trade and industrial education. The report recommends that courses in vocational areas be incorporated into graduate education and inservice programs for counselors. (BH)
