This report represents a synthesis of selected information regarding the status of vocational education during the 1976-77 school year. The first of five chapters summarizes the principal findings regarding the status of vocational education as well as the social, political, and economic contexts within which they occurred. Subsequent chapters present more detailed information regarding (1) who is being served by vocational education, (2) how well they are being served in terms of outcomes realized, (3) the resources needed to provide these services, and (4) changes that have been and are to be made in the data base that is used to support the planning, management, and evaluation of vocational education programs at the local, state, and federal levels. Data summaries based primarily upon reports submitted by the states to the United States Office of Education and materials prepared by the United States Department of Labor and the National Center for Educational Statistics are presented in the statistical appendix.
