This document is a transcript of hearings conducted in December 1981 on the reauthorization of the Vocational Education Act of 1963. The specific focus of the hearings was vocational education personnel development. The graduate leadership development program provides opportunities for experienced vocational educators to study full-time in an advanced study program for up to 3 years. The teacher certification fellowship program provides opportunities for unemployed, previously certified teachers and persons from business, industry, and agriculture to seek certification in vocational instructional areas in which a need for teachers has been identified. Major testimony was taken from state department personnel development staffs, university vocational teacher education directors, professors of vocational and technical education, and the assistant secretary for Vocational and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education. The witnesses testified about the previous uses made of these programs and the need for them to continue under the reauthorization of the Vocational Education Act. Statistics were cited on how many people had become vocational education teachers, how many university vocational teacher educators had been prepared, and how many vocational teachers are still needed. Also examined were other programs under the provisions of this section of the act, including projects of national significance, the National Center for Research in Vocational Education, and vocational education personnel training.
