The Advisory Council on Vocational Education in 1968 issued a report on program implementation and goal achievement in vocational education. Six regional conferences and a summary conference were held in the fall of 1968 to evaluate that report and determine its implications for government action. A broad goal of these conferences was to increase public understanding of vocational education and its objectives. The conferences generally agreed that vocational education needs more power and money, and that its relationships with industry, general education, and other training programs for the disadvantaged should be strengthened. This report is a partial selection and summary of ideas and proposals of the seven conferences. Many of the issues which confronted the conferees remain unsolved in spite of the passage of the Vocational Education Act of 1968. (BH)
