Articulation Between North Carolina's Public System of Elementary and Secondary Schools and Public System of Technical Institutes and Community Colleges. A Report With Suggestions for Continuing Efforts.
Manley, Fred W.
A well articulated educational program provides students an opportunity to develop to their highest potential without unnecessary duplication of instruction and delay in attaining their educational and career objectives. To provide articulation between North Carolina's public system of elementary, secondary and post secondary schools, the State Board of Education appointed a committee from State Department of Community Colleges and State Department of Public Instruction to cooperate with the Occupational Research Unit in providing leadership in coordinating and implementing articulated programs. Major objectives of the programs were: (1) developing model administrative arrangements, (2) providing articulation of subject matter, (3) promoting innovation and coordination, (4) providing a better total program of occupational education, and (5) providing articulation of handicapped and disadvantaged programs. The report contains examples of programs, evaluations, and suggestions for continuing articulated efforts. A review of research of articulated efforts in the United States, a detailed background of planning, implementing and reporting of articulation efforts in 1970, and a review of articulation efforts in North Carolina prior to 1970 are appended.
