National Assessment of Vocational Education. Final Report to Congress. Volume II. Participation in and Quality of Vocational Education.
Boesel, David; And Others
This document, the second of five volumes that comprise the final report of the National Assessment of Vocational Education examines some major features of contemporary vocational education: students, teachers, classes, and educational and employment outcomes. The first two chapters address student participation and program quality, as measured by a number of indicators. Chapter 1 examines participation and access in public secondary vocational education; postsecondary participation and access are addressed in chapter 2. Chapter 3 discusses qualifications of teachers in secondary and postsecondary institutions, assesses teacher preparation, and considers shortages of secondary vocational teachers. Chapter 4 examines program requirements and courses in secondary vocational education to assess their consistency with Perkins goals, role in preparing students for work, and role in secondary education. Chapter 5 focuses on the relation between vocational education and academic coursetaking, student achievement, high school completion, and educational attainment. Chapter 6 investigates the connection between vocational training and employment outcomes for students who received vocational training in high school and in subbaccalaureate postsecondary institutions. Chapter 7 examines employers' opinions of vocational programs and some ways employers interact with them. Endnotes follow each chapter; data tables and a figure are appended. (YLB)
