A Study to Determine the Effect of the Vocational Education Act of 1963 upon Business Teacher Education Programs in Selected Colleges and Universities.
Long, Robert Charles
The problems of this study was to assess the innovations, if any, that have been made in selected business teacher education institutions to implement the provisions of their state plan for vocational education. Areas of primary concern were: (1) to identify and analyze the changes in the teacher education curriculums for the preparation of office education teachers, and (2) to ascertain the differences in the teacher education curriculums preparing office education teachers and coordinators for secondary schools, selected post secondary schools, Manpower and Job Corps programs, and private business schools. Based on data collected by interviews and questionnaires, it was revealed that 65 of the 141 institutions offered teacher education programs that had been implemented with the provisions of the state plan. A major conclusion of the study is that the direction given to administrators of business teacher education programs for implementing the provisions of their state plans into their curriculums appears to be indefinite and inadequate. Other findings and conclusions are discussed. (Author/JS)
