Factors Associated with Participation by Michigan School Superintendents in Programs Authorized under the Provisions of the Vocational Education Act of 1963.
Pierce, William Frank
The major purpose of this study was to identify some of the variables associated with the decisions of school superintendents to submit applications for funding under the provisions of the Vocational Education Act of 1963. By means of a questionnaire, 200 randomly selected public school superintendents were requested to submit data concerning their: (1) professional preparation and experience, (2) professional environment, and (3) the operational procedures of the Division of Vocational Education. Major findings based on analysis of data revealed that: (1) Superintendents who applied for funds possessed a significantly higher level of academic preparation, and (2) The superintendent's undergraduate major, types and length of teaching experience, length of experience as a superintendent or length of employment in fields other than education had no significant relation to the decision to apply for funds. In regard to variables related to the superintendent's immediate professional environment, it was found that superintendents who attended regional conferences conducted by the Division of Vocational Education were more likely to apply for funds.
