This report provides guidelines for educational policy based on an analysis of current and projected manpower development in the state of California. The major findings and recommendations are: (1) A specific agency must be developed to recommend to the state government long-range policies for manpower development and education. (2) The secondary school system must be improved and the junior colleges should provide remedial and general education programs as well as more work-oriented education. (3) The state must become more self-sufficient in providing its own manpower and work-oriented education at the high school level should be of a general nature. (4) A greater emphasis must be placed on vocational and technical education in public schools along with closer cooperation with other agencies involved in manpower training. (5) The United States as well as California must improve and/or develop a system to facilitate the synchronization of occupational education-training objectives. (6) Studies must be made to determine which formulas for distribution of state financial aid are to made to equalize the success and achievements rate and to develop equitable base for occupation-oriented education.
