The Federal Role in Vocational Education: Sponsored Research. Special Report No. 39.
National Commission for Employment Policy (DOL), Washington, DC.
The seven papers in this volume address three topics: the economic effects of vocational education, occupational projections, and coordination among institutions providing training. The first paper analyzes high school vocational education from an economic viewpoint, while the second examines the effects of vocational training coupled with the size of firms on the employment experience of noncollege youth. The last paper in the outcomes of vocational education section assesses the effectiveness of vocational education and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs through the use of routinely available administrative data. In the second section on occupational projections and vocational education, technical information on occupational coding is provided, and vocational education for coal mining in West Virginia is profiled. The final section examines educational coordination, first between CETA and vocational education as seen by vocational educators and then through an examination of the role of federal vocational education funding in promoting reemployment of disabled workers.
