The advisory committee and vocational education by American Vocational Association( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because vocational education programs must be an integral part of the community in which they exist, it is necessary to have close cooperation between the school and those in the work force. One of the most effective ways of providing cooperation is through the vocational education advisory committee. At present, there are about 20,000 such groups. These committees are unique in their ability to provide occupational information and aid in establishing vocational education programs. Their organization, name, and function can be altered to fit specific needs and situations. Their only limitation is that the advisory committees can assume neither legislative nor administrative responsibility. The school can benefit from the experience of the advisory committee and use their recommendations to help build and maintain a successful program. (Bc)
