Learning a Living Across the Nation: Project Baseline Second National Report. Baseline Year: 1970-71 (Fiscal Year 1971).
Lee, Arthur M.
This comprehensive volume attempts (1) to show the extent to which legislative acts of the 1960's have made an impact in using national resources to provide persons with necessary preparations for employment; and (2) contains a major portion of what the states and territories know about their own vocational education students, programs, costs, and results. The first in a four-volume series, this Project Baseline report is mostly devoted to specific tables on vocational enrollment statistics; student-teacher ratios; enrollment by age and percent of population; enrollment by occupational area; the rank order of individual States by minority group, sex, Federal program area, and other limiting enrollment factors; expenditures for vocational education by Federal, State, and local levels per student for secondary, postsecondary, and adult education; and percentage increases in Federal expenditures. This State-by-State presentation also treats strengths and weaknesses, research and change, and new developments affecting vocational education, and offers recommendations. There are two appendixes on congressional objectives and the background of vocational education legislation. (NH)
