Overview 1974 Reports: State Advisory Councils on Vocational Education.
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
A one- to two-page summary of each of the 1974 annual reports of 52 State and territory vocational education advisory councils constitute the major contents of this booklet. Focus is on issues, concerns, program needs, and recommendations for the respective State or territory. Also included is a 12-page overview designed to present a broad picture of the needs and concerns of all the States. The overview is organized under the following topics: Funding (which is of concern to all States); disadvantaged and handicapped (the overall consensus being that these needs are not adequately being served); the State Plan (criticism of which is extensive); the need for a comprehensive data system (addressed by all States); the effective utilization of existing facilities (recognized by many States as essential; the need for reorientation of guidance and counseling personnel (generally recognized by all); articulation and coordination (where emphasis has been placed in two general areas: between postsecondary and secondary, and coordination among agencies); local advisory groups (which have been evaluated as generally successful); and a consensus that flexible programming will provide more services and training opportunities (prevalent among the States).
