Current State of Occupational and Technical Training: The Need for Integration and High Quality Programs

C. S. Benson

This working paper was originally prepared for the 1991 Summer Institute co-sponsored by NCRVE and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The paper discusses national data on the status of occupational and technical training at secondary and postsecondary levels, characteristics of teachers, and the economic value of vocational education. The author recommends that a "national skills strategy" be developed to be complemented by a "national training strategy."
