Potential for Occupational Education or Career Development Programs in Two School Systems.
Engelhardt, David F.
This document contains excerpts from two larger studies illustrating how two communities have approached problems of bias and neglect in the occupational education area. The first series of excerpts come from a curriculum study conducted in an affluent suburb where a high motivation for college preparatory work exists but not for occupational programs. Findings from the curriculum study are provided for the areas of: (1) occupational education, (2) industrial arts, (3) home economics, and (4) business education. The second series of excerpts come from an appendix of a school consolidation survey conducted in a rural area where transition from traditional vocational agricultural programs to more "modern" courses was being contemplated. Results relating to the need for vocational education, philosophy, educational facilities, recommended courses, and implementation strategies are discussed. (SB)
