Problem Areas in Occupational Education for the 1970's.
Moore, Allen B.; King, Sue J.
In a study undertaken to identify and classify some of the pressing problems in occupational education, a total of 1,007 occupational educators in the United States and territories were contacted for comments in spring and summer 1971. Based on a modified content analysis of 200 responses the major problem areas were identified, including: (1) creating and maintaining a favorable climate for occupational education, (2) developing planning and management systems and obtaining and allocating resources, (3) assessing the process and product of occupational education, (4) improving curriculum and instructional systems, (5) providing adequate professional development for occupational education, (6) providing assistance in career planning, and (7) translating manpower demands and individual needs into occupational education programs. The study report contains a description of the problem areas and their major components, and includes selected quotes from individual respondents. (JS/Author)
