The Impact of a Rescheduled School Year on Vocational Training Centers in New York State.
Thomas, George I.
Each year several hundred thousand young men and women join the ranks of the unemployed because they have terminated their formal education without having mastered the type of skills necessary to become contributing members of society. As a result, many of these individuals are doomed to become burdens on society. One solution to this problem lies in the development of expansive vocational training programs which would involve the adoption of specific extended school year programs. Thus, this document describes school organization patterns which can set the stage for an influx of new students into ongoing or new vocational training programs, including needed changes in administrative and teaching practices. Major sections of the document are: (1) Releasing Learning Space In An Occupational Training Center Through Adoption Of The Multiple Trails Continuous Learning Year Concept, (2) The Multiple Session Day Program, (3) The Multiple Session Week, and (4) The Multiple Session Occupational Education Program. Also included is a section of related issues and answers. (Author/JS)
