The Association Between Local School Administrators' and Counselors' Attitudes Toward Vocational Education and Selected Characteristics of Their Students Attending a Vocational-Technical School.
Gardner, Glen Martin
To determine the relationship between the attitudes held by administrators and counselors toward vocational education to the attitudes and abilities of students from their schools attending an area vocational-technical school, data were gathered from 10 administrators, 10 counselors, and 209 students enrolled in an area vocational school for the first time. The attitudes toward vocational education held by the students, the General Learning Ability scores, and the occupational pattern scores of students from schools where the administrator and/or counselor scored above the mean on the Attitude Toward Vocational Education (ATVE) Scale were compared to the same criteria of the students from schools where the administrator and/or counselor scored below the mean on the ATVE scale. Data analysis revealed that students from schools where the administrator and/or counselor scored above the mean on the ATVE Scale also scored higher on the AVTE Scale, had generally higher General Learning Ability scores, and a higher percentage passed the occupational pattern for the vocational program in which they were enrolled than did students from schools where the administrator and/or counselor scored below the mean on the ATVE Scale.
