Vocational Research and Development: Key to Survival in America's Third Century.
A primary rationale presented for the continuance of vocational research and development is that major technological changes will require the development of curriculum programs to meet the changing needs of industry as new job skills continue to emerge. Additional factors that challenge vocational research are the development of marketable skills for all high school students whether or not they plan to continue their education; retraining of the unemployed; the provision of opportunities for women, the disadvantaged, and handicapped; effective guidance and counseling programs; and the development of statewide management information systems.
