The conference, attended by 231 participants from 48 of the 50 States plus five outside observers, included a minimum number of formal presentations and a maximum number of small groups where participants could consider issues and exchange ideas.

Also: community relations, relationships with the total educational community, urban area implementation, rural area implementation, resource materials centers, career education for special education, funding strategies, and home/family relationship to career education. A. Jackson Stemmer's "Information Based Evaluation for Career Education" is included. Summary statements were drawn up from administrative groups.
