Vocational Education in Major Cities: Analysis of Population, Vocational Education Enrollment, Teachers, and Expenditures FY 1973.
Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
Information in the report is taken from FY 1973 annual vocational education reports submitted by States and major cities and from the 1970 census report. The material indicates the proportion of the States' population served by vocational education in the major cities and the expenditures that were made for vocational education. The total vocational enrollment for the State and city is reported with a breakdown by educational level and number of disadvantaged and handicapped enrollees. The expenditures for vocational education are reported by Federal and State/local sources, by total amount allocated to each level of education, and by total amount allocated to the disadvantaged and the handicapped. For States having more than one major city, a total is compiled with a percentage for the total indicated. Information on 56 major cities in 31 States is included. The cities range in population from (Charlotte) 211,178 to (Chicago) 3,366,957. No data is reported from New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, and Richmond. Information indicates that the major cities generally provide a reasonable proportion of their States' vocational education and as a whole have about the same share of the national enrollments as the population.
