This book is a philosophical assessment of the curriculum and education, which presents an attractively formulated conception of the good life.

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a description of the status of vocational agricultural education in Michigan in preparation for statewide planning to meet the educational needs of the state's agricultural sector. The report includes three major sections. The first section summarizes each of the four reports that were completed by the project staff at Michigan State University: (l) a baseline survey of secondary agricultural instructors in Michigan; (2) status and trends of vocational-technical education in agriculture; (3) opinions of secondary school principals of schools that have dropped, added, or maintained secondary agriculture programs; and (4) employer opinions about graduates of secondary agricultural education programs. The summary statements presented are designed to emphasize and highlight the findings of the various reports that have direct implications for formulating recommendations for policy and program changes in vocational and technical education in agriculture in Michigan. The second major section reports the findings and recommendations of the External Review Committee. Information about the review committee, its activities, and its recommendations are presented. The concluding section of the report includes the consultant's summary and recommendations and reaction to the recommendations by the review committee. (Kc)
An examination of the receptivity of Mexican-American and Anglo rural disadvantaged to educational programs by Lloyd W Tindall( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to determine the willingness of rural disadvantaged to participate in educational programs, 125 rural male Anglo and Mexican American household heads, both on and off welfare, were interviewed. The stratified sample was drawn from 4 Michigan counties. Based on findings from the 81 questions, these conclusions were made: Mexican Americans were more willing to participate in educational classes than Anglos, and both groups desired to participate in such classes to get a job or a better job; there was no difference in willingness of these groups to participate in educational programs on the basis of welfare or nonwelfare status; decisions to participate would tend to be determined by the character of a prospective job; respondents were willing to participate in classes pertaining to their personal, educational, and social welfare (E.G., classes on buying food or obtaining credit); respondents tended to see themselves favorably in terms of ability to be hired for a job, run their own business, or be leaders; respondents indicated that classes should last no longer than 6 months; transportation to class was viewed as a problem; respondents would not spend their own money for tuition or supplies; age, residence, miles to high school, educational achievement, number of children, income, size of town shopped in, and time lived in Michigan did not affect willingness of the respondents to participate in classes; and proximity to a community college or university did affect willingness to participate. Included in the document are the study description, study implications, the questionnaire, and a guide for identifying disadvantaged household heads. (Mjb)
Vocational agriculture training program : safe tractor operation : safe farm machinery operation by Franklin Bobbitt( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication was prepared for the United States Office of Education for use by teachers who direct agricultural training programs in safe tractor operation and safe farm machinery operation that comply with the United States Department of Labor regulations on hazardous occupations in agriculture. Upon successful completion of these training programs, 14 and 15 year old youths may receive a "Certificate of Training" which permits them to apply for and accept employment as farm tractor and machinery operators as defined on the certificate. The training program is presented in two parts: one for safe tractor operation (a minimum of 15 hours of instruction required), and one for safe farm machinery operation (a minimum of 10 hours of instruction required plus completion of the tractor program). Emphasis is placed on developing the skills and knowledge needed for safe tractor and machinery operation and developing an understanding of safe operating principles. An item-by-item outline is provided, followed by anticipated problems, questions, and concerns of students, suggested activities, and references for each unit. The relevant section of the Federal Register is appended. (Author/BP)

Project REMEDY Rural Education in Michigan Especially for Disadvantaged Youth by Franklin Bobbitt( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted to develop methods of providing effective vocational education for disadvantaged students in rural areas, including improvement in vocational educators' attitudes and teaching methods with respect to teaching the disadvantaged. A random sample of 20 rural high schools in northwest Michigan with less than 400 students in Grades 9 through 12 was divided equally into a control and an experimental group. Vocational teachers from 18 of the schools participated in the study. Two Likert-Type scales were used to measure teachers' attitudes toward teaching the disadvantaged and the attitudes of the disadvantaged students toward vocational education. An additional instrument was developed to determine teachers' knowledge about teaching disadvantaged youth. Following an in-service program, teachers were again tested for attitude and knowledge. From the findings, the study concluded that an in-service teacher education program can significantly increase the effectiveness of vocational education for disadvantaged students in a heterogeneous classroom and should be encouraged. Finding that there were often too few disadvantaged students in any one class to justify a separate class for those with special needs, the study recommended that programs for the disadvantaged in small rural schools be part of regular vocational programs.
