An overview is provided of the administration, operation, and outcomes of secondary and postsecondary vocational education in Hawaii. Introductory material discusses the Carl Perkins Vocational Education Act of 1984 and provides an overview of vocational education governance. A description of the administration of vocational education delineates the roles of the State Council on Vocational Education, the Vocational Education Coordinating Advisory Council, the Department of Education, and the University of Hawaii's Community Colleges. The next sections offer brief descriptions of other agencies providing vocational training (i.e., the Office of Employment Training Administration, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Job Corps) and of agencies providing services to vocational education (i.e., the Western Curriculum Coordinating Center, Hawaii State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, and Career Kokua). Following a listing of other federal legislation affecting vocational education in the state, the achievements of traditional vocational education programs in the state are highlighted, with focus on enrollment, placement, sex equity/stereotyping, professional personnel development, and involvement with the business community. The next sections provide discussions of the beneficiaries of vocational education, Hawaii's transitional economy, and the issues facing vocational and technical education. Finally, future directions are discussed. A chart showing program availability is appended. (EJV)
