What School Administrators Should Know About Vocational Education for Disadvantaged Youth in Urban Areas.
The job of the school administrator is to provide meaningful and effective occupational education programs to help the disadvantaged segment of our population become useful, productive, and self-sufficient. This guide describes the special problems of the disadvantaged and the administrative procedures required in programs for the disadvantaged. Existing programs are described to illustrate exemplary practices and procedures for program design, development, and administration. The special problems of guidance counseling, financial assistance, residential support, and health services are considered. Staff selection and training are discussed in depth, with a critical analysis of the role of paraprofessionals and volunteers in a program for the disadvantaged.
