Career Education: Implications for Minorities. Proceedings of a National Conference (February 1-3, 1973, Washington, D.C.).
Nellum (A.L.) and Associates, Washington, DC.
The conference, whose proceedings are recorded in the document, met to fulfill a need observed at the 1972 National Policy Conference on Education for Blacks. It was apparent the following gaps in communication needed to be closed: providing minority leaders with information on the concept of career education as viewed by the Office of Education; providing the OE with a minority viewpoint on career education; and developing a dialogue between minority leaders, the National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, and OE on matters relating to education. To meet these objectives, the conference was called, and representatives from seven minority groups met with non-minority conferees. In open session, the implications of career education for minority groups and funding were discussed. Other related topics were discussed by panels and in small group sessions. Reports of statements by minority caucuses, which resulted in formal resolutions and position papers, are included. Twenty-three recommendations are offered to guide the development of the career education concept. In addition to verbatim transcription of the proceedings, the conference agenda and list of participants are included. (AG)
