Three Investigations in Vocational Education Administration. A New Opportunities in Vocational Education Project Supplemental Report.
Frank, Frederick P., Ed.; Mackett-Frank, Muriel, Ed.
Since 1976, a special training program in educational administration for persons with a professional background in vocational education has been conducted at Northern Illinois University. This program is known as the New Opportunities in Vocational Education Project and has an affirmative action emphasis. This supplemental report of the project contains reports of the three project-related investigations in vocational education administration. The first paper presents an analytic framework for conceiving and carrying out administrative training, particularly training with an affirmative action emphasis. It provides a model for training and access for minority and female educators. The second paper in the report presents findings of attitudes and beliefs of vocational educational administrators about selected affirmative action issues. Data from this study indicated that negative attitudes toward women and minority group members as administrators still exist. The third paper presents attitudes and beliefs of vocational education administrators about selected issues confronting vocational administration at the local level. The data presented in this paper indicate that many assumptions about issues confronting vocational education administration at the local level that typically inform vocational administration training programs are only partially correct, and in some cases, substantially incorrect.
