An overview of problems of daily living, major questions concerning daily living experiences, a conceptual framework for enhancing the quality of life, and discussions of issues related to the response of the education system to education for daily living experiences and basic assumptions are presented under the heading of Education to Make a Life. Education to Make a Living, the lengthiest portion of the guide, presents general questions pertaining to career preparation and questions on the topics of social needs, student needs, institutional and system response, a system organization to meet career needs, financing education for careers, accountability for effective career development, and program development in education for careers.
