The report of the National Advisory Council for Career Education (NACCE) presents a design for structuring and legislatively implementing elementary and secondary career education at the national level. Part 1 of the report, recommendations for career education legislation, provides a funding schedule over a five-year period to accomplish nine major objectives: State plans for career education; statewide coordination of career education; statewide evaluation of career education; career education review for school board members, school administrators, and community leaders; inservice development of instructional personnel; inservice development of career education counselors; appointment of local career education coordinators; preparation of career education coordinatrs; and purchase of career education instructional materials and supplies for local schools. Part 2, statement of rationale, argues that the U.S. is ready for extending the developmental authority of the Commissioner of Education through Federal legislation to further integrate career concepts into the mainstream of American education. Furthermore, it proposes the adoption of new Federal legislation designed to assist the States in implementing career education.
