Education and Jobs for Indiana's Future. A Long-Range State Plan for a Comprehensive Vocational Education Program in Indiana.
Indiana State Commission on Vocational and Technical Education, Indianapolis.
An initial plan for a comprehensive vocational and technical education program in Indiana, this document contains an introduction, three major sections, six appendices, and a 54-item bibliography. The appendices constitute more than half the document. The introduction explains the document's origins and limitations. The first section states the mission, goal, and initiative of vocational education in Indiana. Priorities and strategies are set forth in the second section, including those having to do with resources; evaluation and accountability; agency and institution missions and levels; basic skills; guidance, counseling, placement, and career development services; professional development; and partnerships. The third section lists the following areas in which future policy development or statements may be identified: basic skills; guidance, counseling, placement, and career development services; professional development; resources; evaluation and accountability; educational levels; funding; duplication; transition and articulation; curriculum; the obsolescence, relevance to labor market demands, and cost-effectiveness or cost-benefit of vocational offerings; technical education and training for adults; and definitions. The appendices use tables, text, and charts to describe the Indiana population and economy, and contain excerpts from the Indiana legislation that required a comprehensive plan, a list of occupational programs, and an analysis of program supply and demand.
