Abstract or Summary
  • The United States of America faces many serious problems today. To enumerate a few of the major ones we must list: 1.poverty 2.juvenile delinquency 3.school drop-outs 4.automation 5.unskilled people A major aim of a great deal of federal legislation passed during President Kennedy's and President Johnson's terms has been directed toward the solution of these educational problems. It has been implied that education is the key to the solution of many of our modern and age-old problems. 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 occupational education programs. The purpose of this study was to examine the vocational education status of Tillamook and Clatsop counties and to determine the feasibility of establishing area vocational schools. Community leaders, school administrators, and many students have voiced their desire for more occupational education. The State Department of Education was also interested in obtaining information relating to vocational education in these two counties. This research was designed to investigate the following: (1)Employment opportunities (2)Potential vocational education students in the two counties (3)Status of existing vocational facilities, personnel, and curriculum (4)Cooperative educational action by school districts. Information regarding these items will be of special assistance to the school districts in these two counties in planning better education for all ages. A written survey was administered to 4, 706 students from grade 7 through 14 to determine the vocational student potential. Secondary dat3 from the Oregon State Department of Labor was used to determine the job opportunities. Personal inspection of existing facilities and curriculums were made by the investigators. The statutes of the State of Oregon were studied for legal restrictions to cooperative action among school districts. The findings and information summarized in this study indicates that there is a lack of occupational education in Tillamook and Clatsop Counties. Approximately 70 percent of the 4, 706 students surveyed indicated a desire for occupational education in high school, It is the opinion of the author that it is essential to have some form of cooperative action among the smaller school districts in order to provide adequate vocational education for their children. In Tillamook and Clatsop counties the only limitations upon cooperative action appears to be transportation, scheduling, and willingness of the districts to cooperate.
