Participation of Special Education Students in High School Vocational Education: The Influence of School Characteristics

P. Kaufman

This study used nationally representative data to describe the features of schools that provide vocational training to large proportions of their special education students. Using data from the NAEP Transcript Study, several variables that had an impact on the vocational enrollment of handicapped students were found. After other factors were held constant, these variables had a small effect on the overall amount of vocational education taken by students, a negligible effect on the proportion of vocational courses taken by students in SLMP, and a relatively large effect on the proportion of vocational courses taken by students in mainstream settings.
