Summary

Current opinion regarding the role of the high school in professional, technical, and vocational education is that changes in technology make it impossible for schools to do any training other than general education, or that youth should be trained with only immediate saleable skills because they will have several careers before retiring and will need retraining. Neither position seems adequate but both must be utilized in varying proportions according to the nature of the job family being prepared for. Underlying all professional, skilled, and technical occupations lies a substantial set of behaviors which can be taught and described and which are remarkably stable. A proposed model of stable behaviors consists of at least 12 observable, definable, and teachable stages--(1) the scientific method (data procurement, observation, recording, organization, interpretation, and evaluation), (2) social science and economics philosophy, (3) finance, (4) management and production, (5) sales and advertising, (6) transportation and logistics, and (7) accounting and analysis. A program based on these behaviors resolves into an applied scientific method and could best be carried out as a 2- or 3-hour core program utilizing team teaching. Pupils taught by this method would gain competence in the applied scientific method and familiarity with wide variety of jobs. Professional, technical, and vocational education must be viewed as a whole. This document appeared in the "Journal of secondary education," volume 40, number 5, May 1965. (mm)
