Status Report on Female Enrollment in New Jersey Vocational Education 1988.
Montclair State Coll., Upper Montclair, NJ. Life Skills Center.
The New Jersey Occupational Information Coordinating Committee's statistics for average annual predicted job openings for 1984-87 are presented, along with the New Jersey Division of Vocational Education's enrollment statistics for the same period. The number of males and females enrolled in secondary programs for each of the 29 job categories studied for these 3 years is also presented. From this information, comparisons are made of male/female enrollment and changes in nontraditional enrollment. (For this report, a nontraditional program for women is defined as one in which most of the participants are men and a nontraditional program for men is the opposite.) Further comparisons are made of the total numbers of people trained at the secondary, postsecondary, and proprietary school levels and the predicted annual job openings. Job categories included are automotive body repair, automotive mechanic, bank clerk, bookkeeping and accounting, building maintenance, cabinetmaking and furniture making, carpentry, child care worker, clothing manufacturing, commercial art, computer operator, computer programming, cosmetology, data entry keyer, drafting and design, electrical and electronic technology, electrical equipment repair, electrician, food marketing, food service, graphic arts, health aide, heating and cooling mechanic, licensed practical nurse, machinist, office occupations, plumbing, sales and purchasing, and welding. No significant changes are reported in nontraditional enrollments, although female enrollment is increasing more rapidly than male enrollment overall. (KC)
