Summary

A study examined the relationship between state-level administrative structure and the current and expected roles of state supervisors of vocational agriculture. A survey instrument designed to collect information regarding state-level administrative structure for vocational education was mailed to fifty head state supervisors of vocational agriculture in the United States. A total of 504 high school vocational agriculture teachers and 196 state supervisors of vocational education in nineteen randomly selected states were surveyed to determine perceptions of the current and expected roles of state supervisors and local school personnel. The states analyzed were categorized into four groups with respect to degree of administrative authority. In all groups both state supervisors and teachers had similar perceptions of the current and expected role of state supervisors and neither teachers nor supervisors perceived any great difference between state-level administrative structure and such activities as research and evaluation activities and public relations activities. Recommendations call for further investigation in the following areas: actual activities performed by state supervisors, barriers impeding supervisors from performing supervisory activities, and the degree and nature of actual contact between state supervisors and local teachers and programs. (A list of thirty-seven administrator activities is appended.) (MN)
