The participants were asked to provide 10 possible endings to the following statement: In order to plan vocational and technical education during the decade ahead, the State Department of Vocational and Technical Education should concentrate its resources and energies in the following area... Results of three rankings are presented in the hope that they can be used as input in the planning process. (Author/JS)
