Technology, the Economy, and Vocational Education.
Rosenfeld, Stuart A., Ed.
Papers, panels, and commentaries (responses) are provided from a conference attended by traditional educators, vocational educators, and economists to discuss the impact of technology on vocational education in the high school and suggest appropriate responses. The introduction is by Stuart Rosenfeld. The first three papers address the theme of the impacts of technology on the economy: "Changes and Choices: A Review of Technology's Impact on Vocational Education in the High School" (Stuart Rosenfeld), "New Skills for the Changing Economy" (Ray Marshall), and "The New Economy: Hope versus Realities" (Stephen Roach). The next two papers focus on new conceptions of vocational education. They are "Facing an International Economy: The Need for Structural Change in Education" (Marc Tucker) and "A View from Industry: Challenges for Worker Training" (Harry LeColst). Two commentaries are by Jay Robinson and Addison Hobbs. The next three presentations on the nature of the vocational education system itself are "Rethinking the Delivery of Vocational Educational Programs in Secondary Schools" (E. Gareth Hoachlander), "Equity and Vocational Education" (Carol Gibson), and "Linking Theory and Practice: Innovation in the Structure of Secondary Education" (David Mandel). J. Barry Ballard and Ann Bardwell provide commentaries. Two papers focus on the vocational education teaching profession, supply and demand, and preparation. They are "The Education of High School Vocational Educators" (Willis Hawley) and "Vocational Agriculture Teacher Preparation" (Jasper Lee). Commentaries by Sara Shelton and Joe Nathan are presented next. Neal Peirce summarizes the proceedings. (YLB)
