Vocational Education: Characteristics of Teachers and Students, 1969.
Kay, Evelyn R.
Despite the long existence of vocational education in the school system, very little is known about the characteristics of the participants. Thus, this report presents the findings of a study of the characteristics of vocational education teachers and students. Information on the professional qualifications and teaching experiences of teachers is examined in relation to other characteristics and to the types of vocational education programs being taught. Information on students includes individual and family characteristics, program and labor force activity, and plans for the future. Among the findings of this report are: (1) The typical vocational education teacher is a male in his early 40's, (2) Median earnings of vocational education teachers are approximately $8,700 for a contract year, and (3) There are slightly more female vocational students than male students. However, males outnumber females at the postsecondary level. (Author/JS)
