Gray, Kenney E.; And Others
The results of several surveys conducted to assess current employment needs and student and parent interests in greater Nashville (Tennessee) are reported. The needs assessment was conducted in an effort to generate information which would be useful for planning expanded vocational education programs in the metropolitan public schools of Nashville-Davidson County. The findings of the surveys are reported in five chapters as follows: (1) Nashville area employment needs survey for 1976, (2) entrance requirements for highest demand occupations, (3) student and parent survey findings, (4) perceptions of curricular needs by school personnel, and (5) recommendations.
