Vocational Education Programs for Special Needs Students in Secondary Schools of Mississippi.
Steed, Allen Terry
The objectives of this study were to: (1) describe existing programs for special needs students, (2) provide information on students and teachers in these programs, (3) compare teacher and administrator appraisal of the programs, and (4) determine the degree of program acceptance by students, parents, and the public. Questionnaires and interviews revealed the views of teachers, administrators, and students in 46 Mississippi secondary schools offering special needs programs in vocational education. Self-appraisal of the programs disclosed several shortcomings: (1) lack of orientation programs, (2) inadequate preparation of administrators and teachers, (3) lack of participation by other teachers and guidance personnel, and (4) insufficient equipment and teaching materials. The report should provide vocational educators and administrators with information useful in the decision making process, resource allocation, program planning and implementation, and staff selection and training.
