216 p. 

This is the technical report of a study conducted to measure the impact of the cutbacks necessitated by Proposition 13 on the availability and quality of vocational education in California, recommend reforms in the priority-setting process for vocational education given reduced levels of support, and recommend changes in regulations and/or legislation to mitigate any negative effects which occurred. Data were collected from a questionnaire survey directed at all of California's public deliverers of vocational education, site visits to a random sample of thirteen institutions throughout the state, and telephone contacts with the Employment Development Department and the State Comprehensive Employment and Training Administration (CETA) office. Findings include the following: responding institutions reported decreases in vocational education budgets of 9% from fiscal year 1977-78 to fiscal year 1978-79; the decreases in vocational education enrollments between the fall of 1977 and the fall of 1978 was 6%; 25% of responding institutions reported that they had eliminated selected vocational education programs as a result of Proposition 13; and 67% of the respondents anticipated a still further reduction of income for fiscal year 1979-80. Recommendations include the following: a stable, dependable, and equitable funding base be developed for vocational education; application and reporting procedures for Vocational Education Act (VEA) funds be simplified; and districts develop contingency plans for "status quo" funding, increased revenues or decreased income in advance of legislative action. (Data tables appear throughout this document; appendix materials include the survey instrument, site visit questions, telephone interviews, project letters, and a field review and comment). (JH)
