This study was undertaken to survey some important attitudes toward educational profession of vocational teachers (i.e. professional beliefs, attitudes toward vocational education, as well as job satisfactions), and some major problems with which teachers and students acturally confronted during regular school-teaching routines, in vocational high schools of Taipei City. Two investigative instruments were developed to achieve the aforesaid two-fold purposes, namely, Professional Attitudes of Vocational Teachers Questionnaire”and“Vocational Teaching Problems Questionnaire”. These instruments were used to explore the selected attitudes of teachers toward educational profession and find out the practical problems really existed in vocational teaching processes, respectively. Based upon statistical analyses of t-test, chi-square test of independence, and Kendall coefficient of concordance of questionnaire data, the main findings are as follows: 1. Professional beliefs of vocational teachers are quite positive. 2. Attitudes toward vocational education of vocational teachers are some-what moderate. 3. Job satisfactions of vocational teachers are relatively lower than expected. 4. The three aspect of teacher attitudes above-mentioned correlate positively and ignificantly, but vary in terms of some variables, such as age, sex, teaching experiences, etc. 5. Educational aims, curricula, subject materials, and teaching equipments are more or less inadequate. 6. Teacher salaries are lower than those of industry employees, in turn, this in posse results in high teacher mobility.7. The quality and motivation of students as a whole is not so praise-worthy. 8. There is a lack of coordination and cooperation between vocational school and industrial enterprise. 9. The measurement and guidance program of students' vocational aptitudes still needs more elaborate improvements. Finally, some derived implications were discussed and recommendations, suggested.
