Florida State Advisory Council on Vocational and Technical Education: Annual Evaluation Report: Fiscal Year 1974.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
The Florida State Advisory Council on Vocational and Technical Education, in preparing its annual evaluation report, found that the State's total program of vocational and technical education has continued to grow at a rapid rate in number of programs and number of persons served. The three goal areas of the evaluation were: (1) focus on the State's goals and priorities as set forth in the State plan; (2) focus on the effectiveness with which people and their needs are served; and (3) focus on the extent to which council recommendations have received due consideration. Information collected to prepare a response to items of inquiry under the three goal areas is presented in the report; the 14 new recommendations of the council are based on that information and appear in the introduction to the document, with references to the location of relevant discussions. Five additional recommendations, from the previous annual evaluation report, are resubmitted for continued emphasis. Appended are: (1) selected statistical tables; (2) an essay distinguishign career education from vocational education; (3) an account of career education materials development; (4) a summary of concerns expressed at public meetings; and (5) a description of Florida legislative action in FY 1973-74 which affects vocational education.
