A Profile of Perceptions Held toward Vocational and Technical Education Programs in Hungary.
Miller, Michael T.; And Others
In order to profile the reality of change within the Hungarian postsecondary education sector and to develop a portrait of the predominant themes in the reconceptualization of Hungarian vocational instruction, interviews were conducted with eight vocational experts from Hungary who visited vocational education programs in the United States. The literature on vocational education in the United States and Hungary was reviewed. Restructuring and updating of vocational curricula in Hungary was found to be under the direction of the Ministry of Labor rather than an educational body; programs were devised primarily for work force preparation. The loosely structured interviews consisted of five questions with key probing terms identified prior to the interviews. The data collected revealed a comprehensive view of applied education in Hungary. Three clusters of common themes were identified: learner or student autonomy, administrative autonomy, and teacher and faculty autonomy. (Author/YLB)
