Summary

Changes in the philosophy of education have given rise to problems of articulation of occupational education. While many of the problems have been present since the founding of the U.S., the expansion in numbers of and need for occupational institutions and community junior colleges have emphasized the problems. A status study of occupational program articulation efforts between vocational-technical schools and junior colleges in four Southeastern States (Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee) was made to determine institutional characteristics (geographic proximity of the two types of school, a comparison of occupational programs offered, credit offered, and the administrator's view on program design which could affect the perceived need for articulation); the nature and extent of present articulation practices; and suggestions for their improvement. The study was limited to public post-secondary vocational-technical schools and junior colleges in the four States. A 90 percent return of usable questionnaires indicated considerable duplication of programs with little articulation realized. Articulation at the local level was apparent, but insufficient in terms of the magnitude of the problem. It was recommended that each institution exert an effort to overcome the identified deficiencies in articulation practices. (AG)
