Abstract or Summary
  • The purposes of this study were: (1) To attempt to determine how well programs of cooperative education are functioning in meeting the needs of pupils and the community through a survey of those programs in selected high schools in Oregon, and (2) To develop recommendations for improving cooperative education programs in secondary schools based on the findings of this survey. The survey utilized data secured from responses to questionnaires developed in two pilot runs and administered in twenty Oregon high schools to principals, teacher-coordinators, and students involved in cooperative education programs. Analysis of the responses resulted in the following findings: 1. A majority of the principals evaluated the program as worthwhile, and indicated that they encountered few problems in scheduling, awarding credits, financing, or operating the programs. 2. Responses from coordinators indicated that they were enthusiastic and optimistic about cooperative education. They expressed concern over time allotments for coordinating activities and the availability of work-training stations. 3. Student responses revealed that the great majority of the students approved of the program, and experienced little difficulty with scheduling related class instruction or with grades and credits. They expressed concern with the amount of time a coordinator could devote to on-job supervision, with student selection methods, and with the need for the program to be available for more students. Recommendations 1. Development of a model cooperative education program for all secondary school students. 2. Re-examination of the total vocational education program in order to develop an articulated program with a well-staffed adequately financed cooperative education program. 3. Suggestions for various methods of housing and operating cooperative education programs. 4. More attention to total staff orientation and involvement with the cooperative education program. 5. Some of the basic components of the teacher intern program techniques of organizing, staffing, and communicating be utilized in the cooperative education program.
