Shattering the Myth: An Assessment of Major Accomplishments of State Councils on Vocational Education.
Barnhardt, Larry; And Others
This document reports the accomplishments of state councils on vocational education over the past 4 years as they carried out their responsibilities set by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act of 1984. It contains an introduction; three sections on findings, on the councils' work on policy issues, and on the councils' function as friendly critics or critical advocates of vocational education; conclusions; and three appendices. Appendix A, the bulk of the document, is a state-by-state description of more than 200 initiatives made by the councils. Appendix B provides a summary of the 1987 biennial evaluation earlier reported by the National Association of State Councils on Vocational Education in its newsletter "SCOVE Alert." Appendix C contains a list of the nine responsibilities with which the state councils are charged in the Perkins Act. (CML)
