Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The record group consists of 5 cubic feet of textual records from the Council on Vocational Education, 1967 to 1996. The record group is organized into the following series: Agendas, Correspondence, Council Files, Minutes, and Reports. This collection will interest researchers concerned with vocational and technical education and job training.
The Council on Vocational Education became a state agency in 1969 with AB1820 (Chapter 1555, Statutes of 1969). Several previous attempts to bring California into accordance with the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968 (Public Law 90-576), an amendment to the Vocational Education Act of 1963, were either vetoed or died in a legislative committee. These previous attempts included AB23 (1968 Session), AB1268 (1968 Session), and AB42 (1969 Session). The council existed to maintain the statewide vocational education program and because the United States Congress required states to coordinate their efforts as a requirement to receiving federal funds. The council published reports analyzing the status of statewide vocational education and evaluating the California's efforts in administering funds and coordinating the local programs. The council's primary purpose was to facilitate the creation of a highly educated and technically proficient work force.
