Singletary, Ernest E.
In order to develop a greater degree of understanding and appreciation of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, the legislation development of Vocational Education is reviewed with particular emphasis on the ten per cent of each State's basic annual allotment to be spent for the handicapped. "Handicapped persons" is defined and guidelines for vocational education teachers of the handicapped are reviewed. Goals of the three primary agencies serving the handicapped in school programs Vocational Education, Vocational Rehabilitation, and Special Education are presented, interagency cooperation for delivery of quality service are explored, and mention is made of some of the better programs serving the handicapped found in the literature. A model cooperative agreement is explored, and training of personnel and other possible services available under the amendments are reviewed. In conclusion the specific impact of the Amendments are briefly discussed. (AG)
