The plan reviews work on projects initiated by the Office of Education and transferred to the National Institute of Education (NIE) and offers a status report on major program areas. It discusses some of the questions in career education, including the problems it addresses and efforts to date. Proposed program goals are to improve knowledge of the relationship between education and work and to increase education's contribution to individuals' abilities to attain satisfying careers. Related strategies are also delineated. The attachments contain a statement of the National Institute of Education regarding its career education related activities and abstracts of projects currently being administered by the career education program. The abstracts make up the largest portion of the document, 128 pages, and are arranged in the six program areas of: (1) research, planning, and policy analysis; (2) guidance, counseling, and placement; (3) curriculum; (4) financial barriers; (5) alternative settings; and (6) systemic or institutional changes. In addition, abstracts of projects awarded research grants in FY 1973 and FY 1974 are included. (Author/MW)
