The Vocational Education Act of 1963, as Amended: A Background Paper.
Wolfe, M. L.
The federal role in vocational education from the Smith Hughes Act of 1917 (Public Law 68-35) through the Vocational Education Act of 1963 (Public Law 88-210), as amended in 1976, is discussed. Following a historical overview of related legislation, the vocational education activities authorized under the current act at the federal, state, and local levels are presented. Detailed are the four federal grants to the states administered by the Commissioner of Education. Six tables are then included to illustrate vocational education expenditures and enrollment data: tables I through III illustrate the level of appropriations for vocational education programs at the federal, state, and local educational levels; tables IV through VI illustrate enrollments in vocational education programs by educational level. Concluding the paper is a brief description of three evaluations and studies mandated by the Vocational Education Act and the Education Amendments of 1976. (JH)
