Facts and informaticm on the setting up of an advisory committee for vocational education will be discussed. "Interest in vocational and tech¬ nical education has reached a jhigh point in iiistory due to a growing awareness of the economic and social implications apparent when occupational opportunities are not available. Local educational agen¬ cies are now willing to provide occupational training as a part of their total program; students are seeking programs other than purely academic; and the public has ac¬ cepted occupational training: as an important function of the tecal edu¬ cational system." The above com^ient was taken from the forwaff' of tj>e 1967-68 Annual Report For Vocational Edu¬ cation in Illinois by the State of Illinois, Board of Vocational Educa¬ tion and Rehabilitation, Division of Vocationed and Technical Education.
