Trends in Vocational Education.
Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
This government report, the second in the "Vocational Education Information" series for fiscal year 1971, includes numerous tables and graphs to present data concerning various trends in vocational education for fiscal year 1965 and other selected fiscal years through 1971. Vocational education trends in enrollments, expenditures, and teacher employment are given separately, including the United States and outlying areas. This statistical information, derived from annual reports published by the Division of Vocational and Technical Education and unpublished data from state annual reports and state plan projections, will prove useful for those interested in the nature and scope of vocational education in the United States, especially program administrators. Projected data are provided for fiscal year 1976, and changes and adjustments from previous reporting methods are explained. The data show significant growth in vocational education, such as curriculum improvements, expanded enrollment, and increased expenditures. In addition, new facilities and equipment and better reporting techniques also reflect the impact of the Vocational Education Acts of 1963 and 1968, although their influence is not fully apparent until fiscal year 1971.
