A Report of Vocational Education Funding Support Provided by States.
Rheault, Keith; Trabert, Bill
This report contains information that resulted from a nationwide survey of vocational education funding. The information represents the responses of 44 states (excluding Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Utah, and Wyoming). An introduction details the procedures and provides a brief summary of the combined data from the 44 responding states with respect to state fund appropriation, the program level in which emphasis is placed in regard to dollars spent, state standards, factors affecting distribution of state funds, on-site monitoring, funding levels, legislative emphasis, and increase in high school graduation requirements. The individual state summaries follow. The following information is provided for each of the 44 states: vocational programs funded by state (program level, state appropriated dollars, administrative authority for funds); enrollment data (program level, statewide vocational program enrollments only, statewide total school enrollments); state standards for vocational education programs and any linkage to funding; listing of distribution factors for state vocational education funds; local recipient accountability (on-site monitoring, other forms of review); state vocational funding levels during the last three years; legislative emphasis, other than funding (increasing, decreasing, or staying the same); and high school graduation requirements, within the last three years. A state summary matrix and the instrument are appended. (YLB)
