Taking on Tomorrow. Innovative Approaches to Post-Secondary Vocational Education for Handicapped Students.
This collection of comments consists of four chapters of informal remarks by trustees, educators, and students from various types and sizes of institutions with innovative mainstreaming programs for handicapped students in postsecondary vocational education programs. Chapter 1 contains comments by nine individuals (students and administrators) on starting four college, community college, and junior college mainstreaming programs. These comments range from individual first impressions to general statements on the needs of the handicapped. Chapter 2 includes the thoughts of nineteen individuals who are connected with six postsecondary mainstreaming programs on program design. Seven individuals associated with three different programs describe job counseling and placement services provided by their respective programs in chapter 3. Eight individuals share their thoughts on effectively implementing mainstreaming programs despite limited funds. A brief annotated bibliography follows. (MN)
