Future Implications for Vocational Education.
Pautler, Albert J., Jr.
Several general areas of concern exist for those involved in the future of vocational education. Industrial needs and manpower projections should be examined more critically; perhaps the work should be designed for the worker, and perhaps more attention should be directed to national and international job trends, and less to local trends. Changes in student population and Federal legislative policies must also be considered by planners. Vocational education directors have a responsibility to keep current inventories of job opportunities at local, State, national, and international levels. Consideration must also be given to the numbers of students who enter and remain in college and to the selection of vocational education teachers. More efficient use must be made of present school facilities. Teacher in-service and pre-service programs need to be made more effective and industrial arts education and educators need to become more closely involved with vocational education. Vocational education programs must determine carefully their objectives and philosophy. Student needs must be given high priority, and more refined methods of student selection must be developed.
