California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.; California Univ., Los Angeles. Div. of Vocational Education.
The document presents the results of a project designed to encourage vocational teacher education expansion in quality, quantity, and diversity to match the expansion in vocational education and manpower development. The material contained in the report represents a consensus of considered judgment from a large cross-section of people involved with vocational teacher education. Seven meetings were held in various locations throughout the nation. Approximately 200 people from 49 States and the District of Columbia participated in the discussions of teacher education. An introductory section describes the purposes and uses of the report. The three major sections of the report consist of fundamental statements, or principles, each followed by an explanatory paragraph. The first section, Foundations, lists items that represent characteristics essential for quality in any State's vocational teacher education program. The next section delineates the roles, tasks, and responsibilities for teacher education under the headings of institutional, local, State, and Federal. A final section, dealing with improvement and expansion of vocational teacher education, is divided into four sections: ways and means, procedures, resources, and role of the American Vocational Association. Appended is a list of participants. (Author/MS)
