Conference participants, representing business, industry, labor, and education, formulated concrete suggestions for action in response to a set of 10 career education concepts. The handbook is a compilation of the suggestions, based on desirability, practical probability, and practical limitations of each concept. The concepts deal with exchange programs for schools and the world of work, field trips, work experience for students, placement, resource persons, year-round school, retired workers as resource persons, job satisfaction, marketable skills, and job availability. The related suggestions are accompanied by a statement of the concept being considered, an explanation of its basis, assumptions regarding the idea, and problems associated with it. (MDW)
