The Knowledge and Opinions of Business Educators Toward Vocational Education with Special Emphasis Toward Distributive Education.
Traicoff, George, Jr.
This study was conducted to lend insight to possible methods of recruiting and preparing distributive education teacher-coordinators, a problem which has concerned state supervisors and teacher-coordinators for several decades. The first section of the inquiry form solicited information on the individual completing the form and the institution where he teaches or studies. The remainder of the form was structured to gather opinions and attitudes of teachers and students toward distributive education. Among the findings of this study were: (1) Approximately 70 percent of the high school business teachers received their education at a state university or college, and the remainder at a private, city or business college or university, (2) Over 35 percent of these teachers had taken a course dealing with the principles of vocational education during their college work, and (3) Over 88 percent of the high school business teachers and 80 percent of the business education majors stated that they had never been discouraged from becoming distributive education coordinators.
