A Time to Every Purpose: Integrating Occupational and Academic Education in Community Colleges and Technical Institutes

W. N. Grubb, E. Kraskouskas

There has recently been a shift in favor of integrating vocational and academic education, a trend which comes in part from the business community and in part as a result of recent federal legislation. However, there has been little guidance as to what such integration might actually involve, especially for community colleges and technical institutes. To fill the gap, this monograph describes various approaches to curriculum integration at the postsecondary level, based on a survey of practices in community colleges and technical institutes across the United States.
