Selected Highlights in Vocational Home Economics Education.
Hurt, Mary Lee, Comp.; King, Bertha G., Comp.
This report describes selected examples of the developments of vocational home economics education in the areas of consumer and homemaking education, occupational home economics, home economics teacher education, and curriculum development. Prompted by the passage of the Vocational Education Act of 1963, and later amendments, the home economics program broadened its scope to provide additional developmental training and services for a more varied population with a multiplicity of needs and expectations. Programs now make it possible for participants to enroll in comprehensive courses in all areas of their interest. An attempt has been made to include programs that show the range of individuals and families being served and ways of assisting them as consumers, in the improvement of their home environment, the quality of their family life, and their preparation for employment. Further, there has occurred a movement to develop career education experiences for children and youth throughout the U.S. (Editor/SN)
