Administrative Coordination of Vocational Education in Metropolitan Areas. Final Report, Institute I, Volume III.
Jones, Charles I.
Designed as one of 10 institutes for the inservice training of vocational-technical educators in eastern metropolitan areas, the major focus of this institute was the administrative coordination within the urban school organization, which is essential to the planning and implementation of programs appropriate to inner city residents. A total of 86 local, state, and national vocational education administrators representing 21 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, participated in formal lectures, informal talks, a symposium, large and small discussion groups, reaction and question panels, small task forces, and individual assignments during the 1-week institute. An assessment of the institute by three evaluative instruments indicated that the content and proceedings were appropriate to the participants' interests. The problems identified and strategies developed during the institute indicate a need for reinterpretation and analysis of the content of political and social management appropriate to the educational sectors of ajor metropolitan areas. Recommendations include: (1) the development of a management by objectives approach for additional administrative systems, and (2) the development of administrative staffing patterns on the basis of function rather than duplication of the state level organization.
