Guidance and Promotion in Business Education. New York State Bureau of Business Education Bulletin No. 204.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Business Education.
Decline in student enrollments in a given subject area may be due to a variety of factors. It may, for example, result from poor student understanding of the potential course and program offering; it may result from inadequate program promotion; it may stem from inadequate understanding of business education courses and sequences by guidance personnel; it may be the result of inadequate imagination and program development on the part of the business and education staff. The performance of every teacher is important to the business department. Classroom performance is undoubtedly the most critical factor in maintaining and building student interest and enrollments. An interesting class with meaningful learning activities will usually cause students to clamor for your course offering. Show students the career potential of a vocational sequence, and there is likely to be even greater interest. This bulletin attempts to provide ideas for promoting better program understanding on the part of school personnel, parents, and students. It may generate a variety of activities which you have been considering but which now deserve your more immediate effort. (Author)
