Trends and Issues in Trade and Industrial Education.
Wichowski, Chester; McMahon, Gordon
Findings are reported from a survey of state- and territorial-level supervisors of trade and industrial education to rate trends and issues in trade and industrial education. (A trend was defined as a course of events or action that is present and likely to continue in the future. An issue was defined as a difference of opinion, dispute, or professional controversy regarding a course of action.) Six tables identify (1) the top 10 trend items, (2) the top 10 issue items, (3) the top trend items within each of the 11 categories of the opinionnaire, (4) the top issue items within each of the 11 categories of the opinionnaire, (5) a listing of additional trend and issue items provided by respondents, and (6) a summary of all responses and their calculated means. The 11 categories of trend and issue items are advisory boards; articulation; curriculum; delivery; followup, placement, and evaluation; funding; guidance and counseling; handicapped and disadvantaged students--special needs; program planning and access; sex-role equity; and teacher preparation and upgrading. The opinionnaire is appended. (YLB)
