Klabenes, Robert E.; Bonner, Larry D.
Reported is a Vocational Education Research Project involving twelve Nebraska school districts. The general purpose was to establish the rationale for an Occupational Education Curriculum. Objectives were to survey Statewide needs in order to assist local education leaders to formulate curriculum goals, operationalize these goals, apply PERT procedures to the development and implementation of innovative concepts, develop action research projects, systematically plan an occupational curriculum, and develop an exportable prototype describing the steps and procedures for writing an occupational education curriculum. The needs-assessment portion involved a followup of students from the freshman classes of each school, a farm and ranch inventory to discover priority areas for the development of secondary agricultural programs, and a survey of 358 business firms to determine manpower and curriculum needs. A seventeen-page section consists of an evaluation report of the project by Larry Braskamp and John Winkworth of the University of Nebraska; each objective is described individually and then general impressions are reported. A number of recommendations are make based on the project findings. The survey instruments and a career education brochure prepared by Educational Service Unit 6 are appended. Data are presented tabularly and in graphs. (MS)
