Status of Vocational Education in FY 1978. A Report to the Congress by the U.S. Commissioner of Education.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Covering 1978, the first year that vocational programs and related activities were supported under P.L. 94-482, this report describes the impact for each section of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1976 on the growth and development of vocational and technical education. Materials, divided into two sections on state vocational and national programs, are presented in the same order that they appear in the act to provide easy access. These results are reported: an all-time high total enrollment, increased male and female enrollment in nontraditional vocational programs, increased enrollment of disadvantaged and minority students, nearly 2,250,000 program completers at all levels, and appropriations and expenditures for vocational education totaling over 5.6 billion dollars. These other specific topics are emphasized: expansion of state advisory councils on vocational education for broader representation of business, labor, educational, and minority interests; states' assessment by Management Evaluation Review for Compliance Quality; implementation of displaced homemaker programs; and development and operation of a Vocational Education Data Reporting and Accounting System.
