A Study to Determine Relationships between Vocational Education Curricular Evolution and Some Aspects of Occupational Evolution.
Brenholtz, Gerald Severn
This study was concerned with occupational trends in relation to the growth of vocational education endeavors to define the nature of the problem, assess trends, and examine major implications. The study consists primarily of an analysis of occupational data and vocational enrollment trends between 1950-51 and 1959-60. In addition, supplementary data were analyzed to delineate the decennial growth pattern for the period 1920-21 through 1960-61 to detect long-term trends. The findings were listed under the areas of agriculture, distributive education, vocational homemaking and industrial education. Specific conclusions include: (1) Vocational agriculture has high enrollment despite a serious decrease in agricultural employment, (2) Distributive education should have additional emphasis placed on secondary and adult programs, (3) Vocational homemaking has little relationship to vocational education, and (4) Industrial education deals with a large segment of the occupational program and should be augmented in size and scope.
