One- to four-page summaries are presented of fifty-seven of the 1978 annual reports of the State Advisory Councils of Vocational Education. Most of the reports, which are arranged alphabetically by state, address the effectiveness of vocational education programs, services, and activities in meeting the objectives as set forth in the state plan and recommend changes warranted by the evaluations. Some reports note council activities and special projects or studies commissioned by the councils.
