The Role of Student Organizations in Vocational Education. Occasional Paper No. 94.
Miller, Edward D.
Vocational student organizations (VSOs) are an integrated part of the overall curricula in most educational institutions. Besides providing many educational and work experiences in the classroom, VSOs benefit faculties, school administrators, and communities. Within the classroom and in the workplace, VSOs put into practice those experiences that develop positive personal attitudes, develop an appreciation of work ethics and productivity, and demonstrate the dignity of work. Faculty members and school administrators who participate in VSOs gain greater exposure to the work conditions and demands of business and industry. By participating in VSOs, educators can observe what technological training is missing in their vocational programs and consequently can take steps to ensure that their local VSOs either remain or become part of a more futurist-oriented educational society by serving as a vehicle for student exposure to and experiences with recent advances in high technology.
