Annual Evaluation Report: Fiscal Year 1974. Illinois State Advisory Council on Vocational Education.
Illinois State Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Springfield.
In its sixth annual evaluation report for fiscal year 1974, the Illinois State Advisory Council on Vocational Education found that although the total program of vocational and technical education has grown both in quality and in number of persons served, there are still many needs to be met. High school dropouts, graduates, and adults need at least entry-level job skills, and a larger percentage of the handicapped and disadvantaged need job training. The council feels that each program should have its own evaluation responsibilities, leaving the council to make a general assessment of the total program with recommendations rather than criticism. Evaluation areas discussed in the report include funding, local and State planning, secondary area vocational centers, occupational programs output and labor demand, career education in the elementary schools, research and development, curriculum and professional development, programs for the disadvantaged and handicapped, and other vocational education and training programs. Evaluation of these areas focused on the State's goals and priorities set forth in the State Plan, the effectiveness with which people and their needs are being served, and the extent to which council recommendations have received consideration. Recommendations for change are detailed for fiscal year 1975. (Author/MF)
