West Central Vocational-Technical Education Survey. Final Report and Recommendations.
Cannon, F. B.
Seventeen West Central Indiana school corporations cooperated in this study designed to provide them with information for decision making regarding vocational-technical education. Sources of information were varied and included school corporations records, State agencies, and surveys of secondary teachers, a sampling of high school students, parents, chamber of commerce representatives, and the graduates of the class of 1965. The information from the surveys is self-report data and is presented in a large number of tables, charts, and maps. Examples of all surveys and questionnaires are given and the responses are discussed in detail. Results are presented in the form of a generalized summary of the responses from parents, teachers, graduates and students. Trends and generalizations are indicated, and detailed analyses of the reports from each of the seventeen school corporations are presented. Seven basic areas of need were identified and eleven recommendations made covering the establishment and functioning of an area Board of Vocational-Technical Educational Services (BOVES). Community-based, school-based and other roadblocks to the development of the BOVES are briefly discussed. (DS)
