Philosophic Considerations in Mainstreaming the Hearing Impaired in Occupational Education Programs: An Empirically Based Discussion of Goals and Objectives.
Miller, John K.; And Others
Described is a study of the philosophical basis of mainstreamed occupational center programs for hearing impaired secondary students in which 307 educators, parents of handicapped students, and handicapped students were interviewed. Among findings discussed for three issues (the general goals of education, the goals of occupational education, and the relationship between the goals of academic and occupational education) are that educators denied the existence of goal differences for deaf and hearing students; parents emphasized specific job preparation as the outcome of occupational education; and Ss perceived differences between occupational and academic education centering on distinctions between general and specialized training, technical training, and preparation for higher education; and between basic cognitive skills and psychomotor skills and applied knowledge.
