Status of Vocational Education and Vocational Education Planning in Area V.
Area 5 Vocational Planning Committee, Pleasant Hill, CA.
A review of the Area V Planning Committee's study and evaluation of vocational education programs in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, California, is presented. Three generalized problem areas were addressed, including: (1) financial support for needed programs; (2) the development of new programs and the evaluation of old ones; and, (3) the lack of a system to coordinate programs and encourage school district cooperation. Problems encountered by the committee included confusion as to the appropriate roles for the committee, its members, and agencies in terms of the area planning process. The adequacy of and accessibility to planning information and financial support for the planning program were also problem areas. Conclusions and recommendations are presented, emphasizing: coordination between vocational education programs, financial support from the State government to help implement educational and manpower information systems, the establishment of a monitoring system for vocational education program status and planning, and regulatory measures. A complete listing of the Committee recommendations and their present status, committee members, and Article 10.4 of the California Education Code are appended. The document is one of a series regarding Area V. (LH)
