Vocational Education in Selected High Schools.
Milam, Thomas Rudolph
The purpose of this study were to identify the vocational offerings of 29 high schools in 12 school systems in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, to determine the principals' perceptions of the vocational programs, the adequacy of the programs as perceived by the principals, and the degree to which the offerings were utilized by the students. The qualifications of the teachers were perceived by the principals as a strong point and the facilities as a weak point of vocational education. Some of the listed needs included more equipment, more materials, better buildings, and a greater variety of course offerings. Additional programs perceived as needed were one agriculture program, 13 distributive education programs, 10 industrial arts programs, and 16 trade and industrial education programs. Six recommendations were made for the improvement of vocational education in the 29 high schools. (Author/GEB)
