Vocational Education: Characteristics of Students and Staff, 1972.
Osso, Nicholas A.
The publication, based on a 1972-73 survey of vocational education students and staff, seeks to answer such questions as who takes vocational training through public secondary schools, what motivates election of these career-related programs, and what courses are studied? The introduction summarizes the study and the remaining six chapters tabulate and discuss the survey data regarding vocational education students in secondary, post-secondary, and adult level classes; teachers of vocational education in secondary school systems; vocational education classes; classes with handicapped and disadvantaged enrollees; and trends. The major part of the document contains three appendixes: Basic Data Tables (137 pages), presenting estimated national totals and data on enrollment in vocational education classes, vocational education teachers, and vocational education classes in 190 tables; Survey methodology (15 pages), describing the sample frame, design, and other factors of the survey; and Survey Forms (11 pages), providing samples of the questionnaires used in the survey.
