State Governance of Vocational Education, 1986.
Faddis, Constance R.; And Others
A study examined the current status of state governance structures for vocational education in the United States. A survey instrument was sent to the chief officer for vocational education in each state, district, and territory in order to identify the type of governance structure in place in each area, the amount of time the structure had been in place, whether the structure was currently being studied, and whether any changes in the structure were being contemplated. State boards of education were responsible for administering vocational education in 41 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Separate boards for vocational education were in existence in seven states and in the Virgin Islands, a university board of regents was responsible for administering vocational education in Hawaii, and the state superintendent was the sole agent and executive officer of the state board in Montana. At the time of the survey, studies of the governance structure were either planned or underway in nine of the states/territories, and changes in the existing governance structure were anticipated in three states and in Puerto Rico.
