Abstract
  • The enactment of the Vocational Education Act of 1963, plus the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962 and the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 have stimulated renewed vigor into the nation's vocational education programs. As a direct result of these acts, new and revised programs are being developed to meet the special needs of citizens of all economic and educational levels who lack occupational competency. The purpose of this study was to examine student and employment data and utilize this information in developing an expanded program of vocational education in Hood River County Schools. Community leaders, educators and agencies were interviewed to obtain information and ascertain the educational and employment needs of the county. Tabulation and analysis of these plus employment and school records provided the findings for this study. A review of literature indicated that most educators recognize the urgent need for a comprehensive high school that will prepare students for both college and work. It is generally agreed that specialization should not come at the high school level but instead offer broad occupational guidance and exploratory programs in occupational clusters. Each phase of the proposed program attempts to develop a progression of vocational guidance and occupational preparedness. Phase one emphasises occupational information and exploration of necessary skills in four vocational areas. Phases two and three consist of deliniation and skill development through vocational guidance, curricular offerings and work experience in agriculture, industrial, business and home economics education. Students have the opportunity to participate in numerous vocational offerings in preparation for job entry or further training and still meet academic requirements. The findings and information summarized in this study, indicate that Hood River County is not unlike most areas in its need for more vocational education. It is apparent that continuous efforts in program development and revision, student follow-up, active guidance and community involvement are essential ingredients for an effective vocational education program.
