A Study of the Vocational Needs of the Greenfield, Tennessee High School. A Mini-Grant Research Project. Research Series No. 12.
Moore, Jerry L.
To determine the vocational-technical education needs of Greenfield High School (Tennessee), questionnaires were given to: (1) 25 percent of the voters of Greenfield, (2) each student in Grades 9-12, (3) parents of students in Grades 8-12, (4) each educator in Weakley County, and (5) each employer listed in the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory. In addition, a survey of existing facilities was conducted and recommendations for building modifications were made by the surveyors. It was concluded that there was a definite need for vocational-technical education. Job opportunities warrant the teaching of more skills which would require additional classroom space and an additional building, for which there are not sufficient funds at this time. It was recommended that a general cooperative education program be introduced for the 1972-73 school year, with the funding coming from the state and local level. Sample questionnaires are appended.
