Summary

A review of the status of vocational trade and industry (T&I) teacher education departments from 1969 through 1986 was designed to determine trends that have affected teacher education. Information reported in the Industrial Teacher Education Directory was reviewed in five intervals of 3 years each. Considerable change was evident in the 10 states selected as representative of trends: Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Texas. The number of Bachelor of Science degrees awarded peaked during school year 1978-79. The number of terminal degrees awarded did not reveal a trend but reflected an erratic pattern. Total number of faculty in rank peaked in 1975-76 and has slightly decreased through 1985-86. Total number of part-time faculty has decreased considerably. The number of research assistants and lecturers has continued to decrease over the 16-year period. The actual number of departments involved in vocational T&I teacher education has decreased. Apparently, the status of vocational T&I teacher education based on entries in the directory was in a general state of decline in the 10 states. (YLB)
