Walters, Norma J.
This monograph discusses the Vocational Education Act of 1963 (VEA) and the factors that led to its passage. An introduction provides an overview of the changes brought about by supply and demand, which led to passage of the VEA. The impact of the Smith Hughes Act, effects of World War II, and the issue of unemployment in the 1950s are considered. Section II describes the findings of the Panel of Consultants convened by President Kennedy in 1961 regarding the failures of vocational education, its limitations, and the panel's impact on the VEA. In section III are reported the findings of the National Advisory Council on Vocational Education concerning implementation of the 1963 VEA. The Advisory Council's recommendations for amendments to the VEA are listed. Section IV outlines the changes that were made in the 1963 VEA by the 1968 Vocational Education Amendments, a result of the Advisory Council's recommendations. Provisions of Titles I, II, and III of the Amendments are cited. Section V describes changes made in the 1968 Act by the Educational Amendments of 1976, Title II--Vocational Education. National priority programs, categories for fundings, and authorizations are specifically addressed. (YLB)
