FOUR MAJOR FACETS OF INVESTIGATION TO BE CONSIDERED WERE INCLUDED IN THE FINAL STUDY PLAN OR MODEL--(1) BASIC BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE COMMUNITY, (2) THE EXTENT TO WHICH COMMUNITY INDUSTRIES ARE AUTOMATING, THE NATURE OF AUTOMATED JOBS IN THE COMMUNITY, AND THE EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING REQUIREMENTS OF THESE AUTOMATED JOBS, (3) THE STATUS OF ELEMENTARY, SECONDARY, OUT-OF-SCHOOL, AND ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND PERSONNEL IN THE COMMUNITY AND OF CURRENT VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IN THE COMMUNITY, AND (4) THE CHANGES IN THE PROGRAM OF EDUCATION WHICH ARE DICTATED BY THE CHANGING REQUIREMENTS OF AUTOMATION.
