Employer Preferences and Teacher-Coordinator Practices in Distributive Education.
Harris, E. Edward
Employer preferences and teacher-coordinator practices were studied and the results compiled to serve as an aid in implementing programs in cooperative vocational education, particularly on the secondary school level. A pilot study, involving 100 employers and 50 teacher-coordinators, was conducted using the questionnaire technique, then was followed by a comprehensive study of 496 teacher-coordinators and 544 employers. The findings indicated that (1) employers in general merchandise and the automotive fields felt training sessions were more important than did employers in other fields, (2) employers who had trained four or more students in the past 2 years felt an advisory committee was very important, and (3) teacher-coordinators from inner city high schools felt a training agreement was less important than did schools from other locations. Specific recommendations were that teacher-coordinators should place increased emphasis on training plans, advisory committees, and training sponsors, and that placement activities must include a review of students in relation to particular expectations.
