Sixteen research reviews are organized under these topics: (1) Curriculum Development, treating a national conference report, a guide for the development of a curriculum, occupational analysis as a basis for curriculum development, and a shared-time concept for area programs, (2) Agricultural Education, reviewing innovative aspects of off-farm programs, directed work-experience programs for secondary students, and a production agriculture curriculum guide, (3) Business and Office Education, reporting a planning study on curriculum renewal, (4) Distributive Education, reporting a survey to determine appropriate occupational programs, the development of a retailing instructional system, a competency pattern approach to curriculum construction, regional workshops on project development, and a curriculum in food handling and distribution, (5) Health Occupations, including a school program for practical nurses, and the Pittsburgh demonstration project, and (6) Home Economics Education, forwarding a plan for comprehensive secondary school programs which includes an illustrated model. "Plain Talk," a continuing column by the editor, discusses the elitist general education philosophy for the education of students in junior and community colleges as opposed to the pragmatic career training philosophy. A bibliography lists the studies reported in this issue as well as 56 additional studies which were not reviewed and provides ordering information. (DM)
