Occupational Training Opportunities for Rural Youth.
Rogers, Charles H.
Concerned with the teaching of vocational agriculture and other vocational education in the rural south, this paper is directed toward an examination of occupational education programs as they relate to population served and to local labor markets. Findings of 2 studies of occupational training opportunities for rural youth in North Carolina are discussed. Recommendations include consolidating small schools to provide for more comprehensive occupational training, establishing more vocational centers, fully integrating separate school systems in the south, providing more manpower studies within the economic areas under consideration, and orienting vocational programs to accommodate occupational plans of local youth.
