Book Review

pp. 68—71

This is a fine book for several reasons. For the experienced vocational educator it provides an update on the principal issues and strategies employed in the field. For the inexperienced, as most school psychologists are in the area of vocational education,this book provides a basic understanding of the issues and statistical information important to the sensitizing of professionals to the need for vocational education for special groups.For school psychologists, the term “special groups” most often connotes persons with exceptionalities as defined in state codes,school regulations, etc. Special groups in this text, however,embrace a much broader categorization of persons including women, retirees, Blacks, Native Americans, Mexican Americans,persons in correctional facilities, youth and the handicapped.
