Occupational Education: A Statement of Policy and Proposed Action by the Regents of the University of the State of New York. Position Paper No. 11.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of the Regents.
The major policy points made in the paper are that: (1) New York State needs a comprehensive system of occupational education which serves all persons needing job preparation and which uses all available public and private resources; (2) such a system will make available to every person a continuum of educational opportunities beginning in early childhood and extending beyond high school for as long as the individual needs or wants such opportunities; (3) occupational orientation in the elementary, middle, and early secondary years will provide all students with the basis for informed decisions regarding their imminent occupational and educational plans; (4) occupational education services for adults and out-of-school youth will be expanded and improved through more orderly arrangements which eliminate wasteful competition and duplication of efforts; and (5) all occupational education programs will be conducted within the framework of a State and regional planning process, coordinated by the State and involving all levels of government and all agencies or groups which operate or are affected by occupational programs. The short-range and long-range program implications of the policy are outlined, with reference to objectives in the New York State Plan. (SD)
