A Unified Approach to Occupational Education. Report of the Commission on Vocational Education.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
A unified educational system develops basic skills, interpersonal relationships, occupational skills, and citizenship responsibilities leading to quality life and work through various components. A unified education system (1) includes all educational programs and deliverers of educational programs at all levels; (2) contains levels and/or components with specific roles and responsibilities; (3) involves sharing information, curriculum ideas, and criteria for student outcomes; (4) allows duplication of effort only where necessary; (5) establishes program standards at all levels; (6) stresses that all courses and programs emphasize experiential learning; (7) is a cyclical, year-round system characterized by open-entry and open-exit principles; (8) requires a commitment to educational work experiences; (9) includes standards that are adopted by the state legislature and reflected in a state plan; (10) awards credit for skills learned inside/outside the system; (11) uses clearly outlined assessment procedures; and (12) eliminates sex stereotyping, irrelevant prerequisites, and admission barriers. The unified educational system is accomplished through a state, district, and site-planning system and involves the efforts of the site educational plan planning council, subject-matter advisory committees, the California Education Council and State Department of Education, and the industry/labor/business advisory group. (The commission on vocational education recommends procedures for implementing a unified educational system and a centralized funding system in California.) (LRA)
