To assist administrators, researchers, and evaluators in better understanding and implementing the Vocational Education Act of 1963, this booklet brings together the provisions of the Act, the regulations, selected provisions from related laws, significant policy, and statements based on public hearings issues. Its format of columns that clearly indicate legislation, rules, and regulations, their citation numbers, and "see also" references to other parts of the text is designed for quick and comprehensive reference use. The other legislation besides the Vocational Education Act includes the following: General Education Provisions Act, Education of the Handicapped Act, Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973, Civil Rights Act of 1964 Title VI, Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Title V, and Education Amendments of 1972 Title IX. Five appendixes are included dealing with the regulations of the Vocational Education Act: (1) the preamble to the final regulations, giving their effective date and rule-making history; (2) critical policy issues raised by their enactment; (3) notice of intent to issue regulations pursuant to the Act; (4) specific questions and answers on the implementation of the Act; and (5) comments and suggestions on the proposed rules, followed by responses indicating reasons for acceptance or rejection of the recommendations.
