Vocational-Technical Education Needs in Kent County.
Delaware State Planning Office, Dover.
The Vocational-Technical Needs Study was undertaken by the Delaware State Planning Office in order to determine if there was a need and a demand for a branch of Delaware Technical and Community College in Kent County. The study involved the use of three surveys--one for all high school juniors and seniors in Kent County, one for a sample of the adult population, and one aimed at industrialists and businessmen to determine the employment needs in the County. The published study report, a tabulation and interpretation of the results of these surveys, in conjunction with discussions held with educators and other interested persons, convinced the Planning Office that not only was a branch of Delaware Technical and Community College needed but a second branch of the County vocational-technical high school was needed as well. The Delaware State Planning Office recommended that a multi-use, multi-jurisdiction facility be considered as a solution to these needs and suggested the formation of a task force to study this recommendation.
