Ohio PRIDE in Vocational Education. Parent and Student Survey.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
PRIDE is an acronym derived from program review for improvement, development, and expansion of vocational education. Questionnaires were administered to 29,864 students and 15,463 parents to determine parent and student responses to vocational education. A general conclusion from statewide reports was that both adults and youth were positive in their response to vocational education. Respondents were in favor of vocational education, vocational guidance, and the educational programs which related to future employment and education beyond high school. The two extremes in this survey dramatically identified job placement as a less positive item contrasted to the overwhelming acceptance of experience as a prerequisite for the teacher in vocational education. Fifty-nine percent of the parents compared to 44 percent of the youth responded that they were satisfied with the school program in their school district. Both groups indicated a positive response that vocational instructors should assist vocational students with job placement in their first opportunity upon graduation. (GB)
