The Plan for Implementation of an Exemplary Occupational Education Program in a Rural Community.
Morgan, Robert L.; And Others
The purpose of this paper is to present an outline of the occupational education program that is being implemented in the rural community of Apex, North Carolina. Cast in the form of an exemplary program and representing a total approach to the problem of occupational education for elementary and secondary school children, the program will provide an integrated educational experience in which each component of the educational system is carefully matched with every other component to produce the greatest possible efficiency. The Apex program is designed to provide for four phases: (1) increased attention to counseling and placement, (2) introduction of occupational education into the lower grades, (3) expansion of occupational education in the middle grades, and (4) provision for additional occupational education and guidance services in upper grades. The all-inclusive goal of this exemplary program is to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing a comprehensive occupational education program in a rural school system. The process objectives are included, and the product objectives are appended. (GB)
