Improvement and Development of the Organization and Administration of Vocational-Technical Education. Final Report.
To help solve the organizational and administrative problems preventing the educational system from fully meeting society's present and future needs, this project sought to: (1) analyze the system's strengths and weaknesses, (2) develop tentative guidelines for reorganization of 16 state vocational education systems, and (3) field test an evaluation instrument for use by state agencies. An organizational structure compiled for 21 states with questionnaire data from state education agency officials was supplemented by group interviews with a cross section of professional and lay persons in 16 states to identify problem areas and possible solutions. Field testing of the evaluation instrument in five states demonstrated the urgent need for evaluation. Although evaluation can be effective in several forms, this revision of an earlier format and criteria used in Pennsylvania was superior in effectiveness and nationwide applicability. (BH)
