Trends in Vocational Education FY 1973.
Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The document includes tables and graphs showing trends in enrollments (Section 1), expenditures (Section 2), and teachers (Section 3) for the United States and outlying areas. Statistical information was derived from annual reports published by the Division of Vocational and Technical Education and unpublished data compiled by the Program Support Branch from State annual reports and State plan projections. Generally, the actual data, showing trends, cover fiscal years 1971-73, with other selected fiscal years for comparison, while the projected data are for FY 1978. Data indicate that vocational education has grown significantly, particularly after the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. The full impact of the Act was not apparent until FY 1971, since funds first became available late in FY 1970. In addition to expansion in enrollments and increased expenditures, positive changes have occurred in the quality and scope of vocational programs. New facilities and equipment have been provided, curriculums updated, and improved reporting systems are being developed. (Author/MW)
