The Principal and Vocational Student Organizations.
Sullivan, Richard L.; Wircenski, Jerry L.
Curriculum Report, v16 n4 Mar 1987
This volume is intended to help secondary school principals see more clearly how they can strengthen the vocational programs in their schools by supporting vocational student organizations (VSOs). The eight major national organizations are described, and their addresses are provided. Ways in which administrators can provide organizational, instructional, and administrative support are recommended to help VSOs promote a positive student attitude toward the world of work, develop effective communication and leadership skills, and promote civic consciousness. Suggestions are offered for some forms that assistance can take in each of the three areas. Brief descriptions follow of the activities of a number of VSOs in various occupational fields. They illustrate ways in which these clubs help their members to learn and practice the skills and attitudes they need for successful participation in the world of work. (YLB)
