Evaluating Vocational Education--Policies and Plans for the 1970s. With an Annotated Bibliography.
Lecht, Leonard A.
The book is concerned with policy issues and related analytical problems involved in the evaluation of vocational education. It is based on a study undertaken by the National Planning Association for the U.S. Office of Education and the National Advisory Commission on Vocational Education. An analysis of available information dealing with the policy implications of vocational education is presented in six chapters. National priorities, students and enrollments, and a look at program success indicators and the future are part of the introductory chapter. Chapters 2 through 6 contain detailed discussions of vocational education subtopics related to: the socioeconomic background of students; changing enrollments; career opportunities, manpower projections, and planning; finances and priorities; and evaluations of vocational education. Appended are eight tables of statistical data and a 65-page annotated bibliography. The bibliography contains items dealing with and arranged according to the subject areas covered in chapters 2 through 5. For the majority of research studies and reports listed, a brief abstract describing purposes, procedures, and findings is included. The book also contains indexes to the text and to the annotated bibliography. (Author/MS)
