A Study of the Administration and Operation of Vocational-Technical Education Programs. [Interim BOAE Report].
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
In compliance with legislative authority, the National Advisory Council on Vocational Education approved a two-year study of the United States Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (BOAE). The study was to be conducted in two phases. Phase I (reported here) sought out current problems in the administration and operation of vocational education programs as conducted by the Division of Vocational and Technical Education (DVTE). The following activities occurred: (1) analysis of BOAE's mission statement and other relevant documents, and (2) conduct of comprehensive interviews with state directors, staff of BOAE and DVTE, personnel from the Office of Education, Office of the Secretary of Health Education and Welfare, and the Office of Management and Budget, and other knowledgeable individuals in vocational education. The data collected were organized into six categories: external factors, structure, workload, staffing, operational planning, and administrative plans. The findings were analyzed, and it was concluded that the publication of a final report should await the conclusion of the second phase after a further and more comprehensive analysis could be made. (This document contains the interim report; CE 022 379 contains the full report; and CE 022 381 contains an executive summary.) (BM)
