It is essential that priorities be realigned and that we return to the concept of education as career preparation. This should include the full range of educational endeavors from preschool through graduate school and adult education. Each state should have a complete plan for occupational education that includes priorities, immediate and long-range goals, funding, and student interests. The task force recommends that Federal education agencies recognize and support occupational education on all grade levels, and that particular concern be given to legislation for post-secondary education. Guiding principles for states in developing their leadership role involve continuity, planning, coordination, innovation, and evaluation. Local and institutional policies and practice determine the ultimate success or failure of a program, and they should provide flexibility, cooperation, and data necessary for a successful operation. Also, accreditation and certification requirements should be recognized and planned for. (GEB)
