Implications of the National Institute of Education Study from the Perspective of Vocational Education.
Copa, George H.
Presented to the American Education Research Association, this speech points out eleven ways examination of a National Institute of Education study plan could have implications for vocational education: (1) defining key terms, (2) identifying or surfacing issues, (3) describing recent or impending changes, (4) summarizing findings, (5) integrating the findings with other related studies, (6) interpreting findings, (7) rationalizing what is found, (8) theorizing to explain findings, (9) drawing implications, (10) recommending other study implications and (11) suggesting study extensions. Forty-one terms found in the study plan that might be further defined for clarity are presented. Three of the four issues identified by the study plan are: How best to distribute federal funds with accompanying data base to rationalize the scheme and federal role?; Is there compliance with the federal laws, how much compliance should be mandated, and how can it be achieved?; and Is consumer and homemaking education needed and effective, and should it be a part of vocational education? The author suggests that the accuracy and sensibility of results will depend on the active interface between the study team, decision makers both in and out of vocational education, and those doing vocational education.
