Programmatic concerns assessed were: (1) budgeting and fundings, (2) secondary area vocational centers, especially those in the Chicago area, (3) the State's evaluation system, (4) programs in occupational and career education and programs for the handicapped, (5) research and curriculum development efforts, (6) minority staffing, (7) private vocational schools, (8) professional development and certification, (9) the status of women within the state. Data were obtained from observations and discussions with lay people and educational personnel, previous studies by the Council, and feedback from federal, state, and local vocational education agencies. Findings revealed that: (1) Over 650 independent local school districts operate programs by their own guidelines, (2) A lack of accountability in fund appropriations exist, (3) Career Education in the elementary schools continues to be very strong, (4) Most vocational programs are not well equipped to service the handicapped, (5) The degree of certification among vocational teachers tends to be questionable, and (6) There exist inequities in minority staffing and female enrollment in vocational programs.
