An Analysis of the Impact of the Vocational Education Act of 1963 on Business Education in the Public Secondary Schools of Missouri with Implications for Teacher Preparation.
Pierce, Robert Benjamin
The purpose of this study was to determine the degree of impact exerted by the Vocational Education Act of 1963 on business education in the public secondary schools of Missouri. The study encompassed an examination of the historical background of Federal Government participation in business education at the public secondary school level throughout the nation and the state of Missouri. The provisions of the 1963 Act and the Missouri State Plan for Vocational Education applicable to business and office education were examined. Additional data regarding educational programs were obtained from the files of the State Department of Education and from a questionnaire which was submitted to all teachers with valid certificates. Based upon data collected and subsequent analysis and findings, conclusions included: (1) Vocational business and office education has been given increased recognition by the Missouri State Department of Education, (2) Vocational business and office instructional personnel have been motivated by certification requirements to obtain academic preparation in the form of professional vocational courses, and (3) A larger percentage of school districts were offering vocational business courses than were doing so prior to the passage of the Act.
