Legislative Mandates for Vocational Education. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 4.
Wheeler, Jeanette D.
One of five modules in the foundation series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into three sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section examines federal laws pertaining to vocational education up to 1963. In section 2 the period from 1963 to 1976 is discussed, with emphasis on the Vocational Education Act of 1963. The third section focuses on Title II of the Education Amendments of 1976, which extended and revised the 1963 Act. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include key legislative provisions for sex equity and summaries of pertinent legislation, suggested responses to the study activities, a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references.
