Learning a Living Across the Nation: Volume 3. Part 1: Narrative Report. Project Baseline Third National Report. Baseline Year: 1972-73 (Fiscal Year 1973).
Lee, Arthur M.
A narrative description of enrollments, costs, and other detail, the document represents the first of a two-part national report of vocational education and manpower training during the school year 1972-73. The Project Baseline study, the third national report, presents the developments of Federal assistance programs throughout the nation and focuses attention on trends in vocational education and manpower training over the three-year period 1970-71 through 1972-73. The statistical tables, on which the study's conclusions were based, are presented in part 2 of the report. Findings related to enrollment growth reveal: (1) vocational education was still expanding in 1972-73; (2) growth is uneven--there is little indication of movement toward national equity over a three-year period; and (3) the 1972-73 growth rate dropped to its lowest point since 1962-63. Project Baseline research regarding fiscal policy at Federal and State levels indicates diminishing financial support resulting from inflation and other factors. Research also indicated that Federal and State reporting policies are limited and in need of reexamination. Three appendixes offer a resume of all the national tables in part 2 critical professional opinions, and suggestions. (MW)
