The Career-Centered Curriculum for the Vocational Complexes in Mississippi. Final Report.
Shill, James F.; And Others
The document is the final report of a three-year exemplary program designed to develop and demonstrate a coordinated and integrated program of career development from the first grade through postsecondary vocational-technical education in a county school system serving a population termed disadvantaged. Heavy emphasis was placed on reorientation of the school concept of occupational education and on a concerted remedial program operated for students identified as potential dropouts. The document includes three 50-page third-party annual evaluations following the project description and a thorough recounting of results and accomplishments. Each evaluation includes background statistical data presented in tables, maps, structural models, samples of printed material and public relations items from local newspapers as well as a program description, evaluation analysis, recommendations, and a summary. Assessments of occupational orientation teachers and remedial teachers' attitudes; student achievement; curriculum materials; and of teacher, parent, and student attitudes to the career education concept and to the adequacy of public relations efforts are included in the third evaluation.
