The Guide to Vocational Education in America: Trends to 1978.
The continued growth of vocational education has set new trends in the field of American education over the past decade. Its growth can be attributed to government action to reduce unemployment and job immobility. Vocational education is an important aspect in State planning; each State is required by the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968 to submit an annual plan to the U. S. Office of Education. State goals for vocational education and plans for construction and renovation of vocational/technical education facilities for 1978 are presented in capsule form. An analysis and tabulation of the trends in enrollments and expenditures in volcational education is presented in three sections: vocational education at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels; expenditures for vocational education; and growth prospects for enrollment in vocational education. A description of key priorities for vocational education is divided into four sections: matching education to manpower needs with projections to 1978, consumer and homemaking education, services to the disadvantaged and handicapped, and cooperative vocational education. The methodology used in the projection for 1978 and a special supplement on enrollments in unofficial vocational education courses are appended. (EC)
