(AP) - A group of state education officials are developing a statewide vocational education program they believe will contribute to Indiana's economic growth, a state education official has announced. "As a state, we have gone from a mostly rural-based to a technological and world-based economy. The challenge is to compete in the world market. We have to make sure high school graduates are ready for employment and further education," said Christopher William Christopher, the Department of Education's commissioner for vocational and technical education. The former Richmond school superintendent said vocational education is a catalyst for speeding up economic development in Indiana. He said the view that vocational schools are a refuge for people who cannot make it in college is a myth. The Indiana Commission on Vocational and Technical Education is working on the statewide program with the Commission for Higher Education and the "Department of Employment and Training Services. The group will make recommendations to the Indiana General Assembly, the former Richmond school superintendent said. Christopher said Friday that vocational education can provide better job skills for Hoosier high school students who don't plan on going to college. The vocational apporach also can help decrease the dropout rate and can play a vital part in re-training Indiana's aging labor force, he said. Christopher said he would iike to see colleges and universities become more receptive to the idea of accepting direct credit transfers from vocational college graduates who want to obtain a bachelor's degree.
