The first of a series of productivity primers examining the interrelationship among vocational education, productivity, and economic development, this volume contains selections from a national conference on the role of vocational education in economic development and productivity that was held in Columbus, Ohio from June 24 through June 26, 1981. Presented first is the conference agenda. The second section of the document deals with an NBC white paper documentary entitled "If Japan Can, Why Can't We?" Included in this section are an introduction to the NBC white paper, a summary of the film, and the text of panel members' reactions to the documentary. Next, existing vocational education programs designed to foster economic development and productivity in three states--Ohio, Florida, and Georgia--are described. Covered in the fourth section is Oklahoma's strategy for increasing productivity. A summary of overall reactions of business and industry representatives to the conference concludes the report. (MN)
