New England Feasibility Study for a Regional Agricultural Teacher Education Program by Gerald Ralph Fuller( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study determined the feasibility of implementing a regional teacher education program in agricultural education using distance learning techniques. Information was obtained in 1991 in the six New England states through interviews with 29 administrators and faculty at land grant universities and 19 administrators and staff in state governments. Results showed that 112 secondary school programs employed 261 licensed teachers. Usually, 10-16 new teachers were needed each year during the 1980s; that need was expected to increase. Five states had teacher education programs in agricultural education, with a total of 36 students enrolled in teacher licensing programs. Within these five states were an equivalent of 5.05 full-time-equivalent teaching faculty; the equivalent of 2.9 faculty spent full time preparing students to teach agricultural and natural resource subjects. Key elements necessary to success of a regional program were commitment, incentives, and teacher education program change. Recommendations related to teacher education include implementation of a regional distance learning program and identification of a common core of pedagogical learning in agricultural teacher education for the region. Recommendations for public school programs include providing leadership to facilitate restructuring of agricultural education in public schools. (Appendixes include additional comments, eight graphs, and executive summary with highlights.) (YLB)
An Interstate Investigation of Employment Opportunities and Educational Requirements for Jobs in Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Enterprises, Phase I. Final Report by William H Annis( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To develop an instrument which would yield the educational needs of those desiring entry-level employment in organized recreation and supportive enterprises and to determine employment opportunities, data were collected through personal interviews with 59 employers in nine outdoor recreation enterprises and 50 employers in six supportive enterprises. The study was limited to two outdoor recreation areas in new Hampshire which served the general public and also offered employment. Supportive enterprises included eating and sleeping accomodations, service stations, sports shops, and stores in the two areas. An instrument was developed which could adequately collect data on the outdoor recreation complex with its supportive enterprises. Some findings were: (1) The recreation complex offers a variety of full-time, part-time, and seasonal employment, (2) Employment opportunities for the unskilled worker are greater during the summer, (3) Courses at secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels are needed in this area, and (4) The majority of job titles identified were below the managerial level with on-the-job training as the only method available to train new employees.

A Pilot Study to Determine the Need for Curriculum Modification in Vocational-Technical Education in New Hampshire by William H Annis( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A pilot study was conducted to determine if vocational-technical educational curriculums were adequate in a selected portion of New Hampshire and to determine what could be done to correct existing deficiencies. Interviews were conducted with 221 of the 463 agricultural enterprises, heavy industry, restaurant, and service industry businesses in the sample area. Some major findings were: (1) 55 percent of employers considered current programs inadequate, (2) Specialized jobs were identified for which very little training is available, (3) Current enrollments indicate a lack of emphasis in training for new specialized jobs, (4) Sales, mechanics, mathematics, supervisory, and food service areas are in need of improved curriculums in the opinion of employers, (5) Employers desired that their employees have training in courtesy, manners, conversation and other related areas, (6) Employers were generally willing to provide some work experience for interested students, and (7) Employers indicated a need for increased communication among business, education, and students. Several recommendations were made, among them that education in the development of personality be offered and the aid of business be secured in providing training. (DM)
