The Enrollment Rates, Dropout Rates and Economic Benefits That Characterize the Experience of the Disadvantaged in Oklahoma's Occupational Training.
Harris, James Lee
Because occupational training for the disadvantaged presents special problems for the educator, this study provides information on some of the needs of disadvantaged students. Data were collected by the Occupational Training Information System and the Oklahoma Research Coordinating Unit from the full time occupational students in the state. The results show: (1) overrepresentation of the culturally and physically handicapped in Oklahoma vocational programs, along with underrepresentation of economically disadvantaged enrollees, (2) influence of program type on enrollment and dropout rates, (3) higher dropout rates for the disadvantaged, except for the physically handicapped, and (4) no difference in economic benefits or placement rates. Specific recommendations are made in the areas of research and guidance programs. This Ed. D. dissertation was submitted to Oklahoma State University. (BH)
