Vocational Education and Guidance: A System for the Seventies.
Rhodes, James A.
Written by a former governor of Ohio, this book is aimed at both the general public and the educational community who are looking for alternative curriculums in the public schools. The author suggests that public school education should focus more carefully on preparing students for the world of work, and proposes a comprehensive vocational education program for students in grades K-12 with a chapter on a work adjustment program for under achievers. Resources for developing this new system of education are listed along with the specific responsibilities of various segments of the community if educational change is to come about. (AG)
