|Abstract:||The idea for this project was in the making since the fall of 1970 when Mr. Clyde Yoshioka, then Dean of Instruction, entered into serious discussions on the matter with Dr. James W. Thornton, then the provost of Honolulu Community College. It was the feeling of both administrators that detailed information on the extent and performance of the various vocational education programs should be obtained. This information was deemed necessary to ensure sound curriculum planning. The various Trade Advisory Committees felt a need for this kind of information, but as volunteer committees did not have time or resources for such a project. It was wisely perceived that such a comprehensive study would also aid in the many requests for supportive data on HCC programs from the fiscal officers of University of Hawaii at Bachman Hall, and further aid in consideration of the guidelines of the P.P.B.S. Moreover, there was a real need to have the instructors go out and meet and establish rapport with the community of industries who eventually receive the HCC trained students. It was largely because of this foresight and perception of the needs of the vocational education programs that the Manpower Survey Project finally became a reality in 1973.|
