Comprehensive Vocational Education Personnel Development and Utilization.
Leslie (C.E.) and Associates, Glen Head, NY.
In order to develop an understanding of vocational education personnel development and to explore the management of change as related to implementation and improvement of the system, 228 vocational educators and leaders in industry at a 2-day national summer workshop sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education agreed on the need for a comprehensive, multidimensional personnel development system for vocational education. Two presentations focused on specific identification of philosophical and organizational elements for this system. A prototype of a state model for vocational education personnel development, accepted by the Workshop, utilized the following principles: (1) Accountability should begin at the state level, (2) Planning should occur throughout the decision-making processes, (3) External inputs for the public and professionals should be allowed, (4) A research component should always be included, and (5) Review and evaluation procedures are necessary. Professional involvement, the role of industry, and the generation and transmission of knowledge were topics highlighted in numerous presentations. Especially emphasized were the special needs for developing policy, refining planning, implementing evaluation, and utilizing change agents which are both internal and external to the system. (AG)
