A Planning Statement: Vocational Education Opportunities for Alaskans.
Simonds, Robert L.
Highlighting vocational education philosophies and needs in individual school districts in Alaska, this position report of the current status of state vocational education programs was developed by the staff of Alaska's Division of Vocational and Adult Education in order to inform the State Board and the Alaskan Legislature of programmatic needs. The six sections of this "state of the art" report cover: (1) a philosophy and definition of vocational education in Alaska, (2) Alaska's unique vocational education imperative, (3) vocational education at each level of the school system, (4) community involvement in those programs affecting the community, (5) establishment of career development centers, and (6) a vocational teacher training design. Recommendations and conclusions of the 2-year study are presented. Various tables and charts present data concerning employment opportunities, programs in operation, and specific programs needed for each school district. (AG)
