Miller, Robert; Miller, LaRue W.
The report describes the impact on the nation of a nine-year effort in research and development in vocational-technical education. Major impact projects are described: (1) developing and restructuring vocational curriculum, (2) developing prevocational curricula, (3) vocational information and guidance systems, (4) management information systems, (5) development of career education, and (6) Statewide commitment. Distribution of Federal funds to the States under the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968 are tabulated, collected information described, and the impact evaluated to provide an interpretation of the overall nine-year effort. Future needs are discussed and suggestions offered. It is concluded that research and development funding has begun to make significant inroads into vital areas of knowledge in vocational education and manpower needs. A 66-page appendix provides: (1) tabulation of research and development funds by State, (2) expenditure profiles, and (3) current status and summary analysis from the U. S. Office of Education Curriculum Branch. (MW)
