The History and Growth of Vocational Education in America
Howard R.D. GordonISBN: 1577662601;
History, philosophy, legislation, and organizational structure are the basic cornerstones that enable readers to gain a thorough understanding of vocational and technical education. The History and Growth of Vocational Education in America is the first book to provide a relevant, up-to-date synthesis of all four study approaches. It provides an in-depth examination of such topics as gender, ethnicity, and special needs populations. The author also addresses the increasingly important role vocational education will play in meeting the needs of the aging "baby boom" workforce as they approach retirement. Readers seeking a career in this field will find a wealth of useful information on vocational student organizations, instructional programs and teacher preparation, and profiles of the leaders who have influenced vocational curriculum development. Chapter-by-chapter discussion questions and activities enhance the learning experience and provide further opportunities for research.
