The Role of Vocational Education in the Occupational Preparation of Handicapped Learners.
Sarkees, Michelle D.
The paper addresses issues in the vocational preparation of handicapped students. Prevocational education, career education, and vocational education are differentiated. Components of six legislatively defined vocational education service areas (agriculture, home economics, business and office occupations, marketing and distributive education, trade and industrial education, and industrial arts education) are listed. Three aspects of instructional delivery in vocational education (classroom, shop and/or laboratory instruction; cooperative vocational education programs; and student organizations) are considered.
