Directory of Representative Work Education Programs 1972-73.
Frankel, Steven M., Ed.; And Others
To study existing school-supervised work education programs, to describe different organizational patterns, to identify constraints on program expansion, and to examine incentives to increase employer participation, representative programs were suggested upon request by Chief State School Officers, Directors of Secondary Vocational Education, Directors of Community Colleges, and other consultants of national repute. The directors of each of the more than 1000 programs named was sent a questionnaire requesting information on schools in which the program operates, educational level of the program, primary purpose of the program, inclusion of job-related instruction, industrial setting, presence of students under age 16, availability of academic credit for time spent at the job site, and related topics. Name, address, and phone number of the project director are included for the 550 questionnaires which met the study requirements. A report "A Topical Bibliography of Work Education Programs, Projects, and Procedures" by Trudy Banta and others preceeded this directory. A final report in the form of 50 case studies is to be published. (AG)
