What Should Vocational Education Be Doing in Montana?
Montana State Advisory Council for Vocational Education, Helena.
This document presents ten views on vocational education needs in Montana and a presentation on the nationwide role of vocational education, from representatives of the National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, local and state education agencies, the public, special needs groups, labor, business and industry. At this 2-day annual public meeting, the keynote speaker discussed the federal government's role in developing career education models and in other vocational exploration activities. Two panels, each with five speakers, stressed needs for: (1) public awareness of vocational education's advantages as compared to college education, (2) job placement, guidance, and counseling, (3) comprehension of educational finance by the public, (4) inservice training of vocational educators, (5) a model apprenticeship program, (6) making education responsive to student aspirations, especially by means of vocational and career education, and (7) innovative business and industrial roles in vocational development. A series of six group discussions provided feedback on vocational education's image and specific improvement needs in Montana, such as interagency coordination and educational finance. (AG)
