An Analysis of Input and Output of Vocational Education in Missouri in Relation to Manpower Needs.
Welsh, Donald Joseph
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the extent to which the allocation of federal, state, and local financial resources for vocational and technical education was sufficient to finance the training and placement of an adequate number of graduates to meet the training needs in Missouri as indicated by the distribution of the work force and labor market trends. Data concerning expenditure, enrollment, and placement of vocational graduates and manpower development trainees were secured from the Missouri State Department of Education and Division of Employment Security. Major findings and recommendations include: (1) A serious imbalance exists between funds expended for vocational education and manpower needs of the state, (2) There is a need for more state funds to support vocational education, (3) A more adequate guidance and placement service should be established, and (4) More students should receive training in the trade and industrial, business and office, distributive, technical, and health occupations.
