Summary

A study was conducted to investigate the duties and responsibilities of local vocational education supervisors in Ohio. The study describes their current role as perceived by local superintendents and vocational supervisors, state vocational education supervisors, and local vocational education teachers, their expected role as described by the same four groups, and discrepancies among the perceptions of the groups. In 1983, surveys were mailed to a sample of 150 local vocational education supervisors, 150 local teachers of vocational education programs, 100 administrators of city and vocational school districts, and 40 state-level supervisors in Ohio; 74 percent responded. The study found little disagreement between perceptions of actual current duties and what should be current duties of local vocational education supervisors. However, there was considerable disagreement among the four respondent groups regarding current and expected duties. Generally, vocational teachers disagreed with the other groups on nearly half of the 47 duty statements in the questionnaire for both current and expected roles. There was little disagreement regarding current or expected roles among vocational superintendents, state supervisors, and local supervisors. The study concluded that a clearer definition of the roles of local vocational education supervisors needs to be made, especially for teachers. (KC)
