Descriptive Report of Program Activities for Vocational Education: Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 1974. (Post-Secondary and Adult Levels).
Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison.
Forty-three vocational education programs funded under Part B of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968 served 67,310 post-secondary students in 16 area districts of Wisconsin. Adult-vocational programs showed enrollment increases; adult-agriculture program enrollments decreased. Special education programs and services were designed to aid 10,571 disadvantaged persons in achieving vocational-technical objectives; similar programs and services were designed for 1,744 handicapped persons. Occupational instructional areas were: agriculture, distributive education, health, office education, technical education, trades and industry, and home economics. The programs were offered at the post-secondary and adult levels. In addition to agriculture, adult programs in home economics and distributive education showed declining enrollments. Federal funds were used for two categories of projects: non-continuing projects (construction and equipment) in the north and western portions of the State, and continuing projects in the southeast. Nine construction projects are described briefly, and activities in special programs (research, exemplary, and consumer and homemaking) are summarized. Highlights of exceptional or model programs are included in the report, as are comments on the organization of vocational youth organizations. Career education and agriculture programs need more attention. The 30-page appendix lists each program by title with a brief description. (AG)
