This document summarizes the findings of a survey of the vocational offerings in Montana secondary schools, using data compiled from the 1987-88 fall reports submitted by local school districts to the Montana Office of Public Instruction. Total vocational enrollment was listed as 41,746. (Students enrolled in more than one vocational class were counted for each class in which they were enrolled.) Service areas and enrollments were agriculture, 2,453; business, 19,625; career education, 269; marketing, 1,115; home economics, 7,211; industrial arts, 6,130; trades and industry, 4,913; and broadcasting, 30. Of the 19,625 students enrolled in business classes, 5,523 were in Typing I; 4,170 were in accounting; and 3,660 were in computer classes. Career education and broadcasting, although not generally considered vocational, were reported that way on the fall report and, consequently, in this document. The enrollment figure for industrial arts includes those courses definitely labeled industrial arts by the schools and those trade/technical classes identified as introductory. The rest of the trades and technical classes are shown as trades and industry enrollments. Twenty-four percent of Montana high school class periods were vocationally oriented classes. The enrollment figures reflect those students enrolled in vocationally oriented classes rather than only those enrolled in vocationally funded programs or only taught by vocationally certified teachers.
