A Profile of Vocational Educators: Preliminary Report, 1974.
A profile of vocational educators in the State of California is presented in the document. The study was designed to provide basic descriptive information about the State's vocational educators: who they are, where they are located, and what their inservice education needs are. A pilot testing of the Basic Description Questionnaire was conducted in the spring of 1973 and the final questionnaire was sent in September 1973. Returns were obtained from 1,137 school districts in 58 counties and 96 community colleges, 8 skill centers, 2 correctional facilities, and 62 regional occupational programs or centers. A total of 9,784 responded, of whom 7,872 (80.5%) were teachers. Following a broad profile description a 66-page section presents tabulation, statistical analysis, and discussion of the data collected in the following areas: educational level, area of teaching, occupational title, and ethnic background. It is emphasized that this is a preliminary study and that the remaining school districts will be contacted and followup procedures initiated during 1974. Results so far indicate that 81% of all vocational educators in the State are employed by senior high schools and community colleges and that only 8.4% are members of minority groups. (EC)
