CRW Associates, Inc., Detroit, MI.
This manual provides step-by-step strategies and materials for recruiting and retaining minority students in secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs. Particular emphasis is placed on recruiting for training, education, and placement in high-growth, emerging occupations and on providing equal access to all vocational and technical programs. Addressed in the individual chapters are the following topics: assessment of Michigan minority student vocational education enrollments, a model for independent local school assessments, procedures for devising recruitment and retention plans, strategies for addressing image problems and interfacing with minority communities, and statewide policy recommendations. Appendixes to the guide include a bibliography, forms for independent school assessment (student, counselor, teacher, staff, and parent and community surveys), and various minority profiles on educational attitudes (Arabic speakers, Blacks, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and Vietnamese persons).
