A Nation at Risk: VICA Members Respond. A Report to the Nation and the Secretary of Education.
Vocational Industrial Clubs of America, Leesburg, VA.
This report presents the response of delegates to the 1983 Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) National Leadership Conference to the report of the National Commission on Excellence and Education, "A Nation at Risk." Their responses are provided to three issues: content (the Five New Basics), time, and citizen involvement. For each issue, a recommendation quoted from the Commission's report is followed by a comment, a question based on the recommendation, and the delegates' response. These are the questions to which delegates responded: (1) How would your completion of the New Basics better prepare you for occupational training and future employment? (2) How would you be affected if you spent more time in school and do you need more time in school for your occupational training? and (3) What could VICA members at all levels do to respond to the report and how might club activities relate to our theme, "Making US First"?
