An Exploratory Study of Programming for Occupational Education in the Pamlico Educational System: Occupational Education Research Project Final Report.
Warren, Donald R.; Way, Harold N.
Research is presented exploring the individual programing practices at both Pamlico High School and Pamlico Technical Institute, Pamlico County, North Carolina and possible means by which the two institutions could better coordinate articulation of their occupational education program activities. The two institutions offer the only available secondary and postsecondary occupational education programs in the rural, undeveloped county. Five chapters include: (1) an introduction to study background material; (2) the theoretical orientation of the study, presenting the organization, social systems, articulation and programing concepts assessed; (3) research methodology, discussing procedures for securing objective and subjective data; (4) a summary of findings, presenting analysis under the headings of socioeconomic conditions, structure, communication, renewal process, need analysis, program design, and evaluation; (5) conclusions and recommendations, based on the findings suggesting means to better utilize facilities and articulate program activities. Further study is recommended regarding questions of the desired scope and intensity of the coordination between Pamlico High School and Pamlico Technical Institute. Appended are: an interview guide for school personnel; and listing of articulation committee participants; criterion items used; summarization of data resulting from the 55 personal interviews; and tables indicating net migration and commuting patterns for the county.
