To focus attention upon the total business education curriculum and how such a curriculum provides for the needs of many different students with many different goals, a number of sequences within the business education curriculum have been suggested: automation and data processing, basic business-economics, bookkeeping, clerical, college preparatory, manager or owner, and secretarial. The basic business-economics sequence is totally general education in nature. The college preparatory sequences should be helpful to students, counselors, and business teachers in planning high school programs for individuals who plan to enter college curriculums in secretarial (or office) administration, business administration, or business teacher education. The sequences are discussed in relation to suggested courses, student population, objectives, occupational opportunities, and evaluation procedures. Specially designed programs such as cooperative business, vocational office, and programs such as cooperative business, vocational office, and distribution education, and diversified cooperative training provide culminating office education and work experience for melding skills and knowledge developed in the suggested sequences. The role of supervision and administration, youth activities, and business education programs at the post-secondary level are discussed. (PS)
