A 10-point plan based on concepts established by the First National Conference on Career Education, 1973, has been examined by a joint committee of the Prince George's County, Maryland Chamber of Commerce and school system. Concepts outlining current and recommended activities include: (1) exchange programs between business/labor/industrial personnel and school personnel; (2) field trips for students; (3) work experience for all high school students; (4) school/industry job placement programs; (5) establishing occupational resource persons from the business/industry/labor community; (6) year-round school, running 16 hours a day, six days a week, and staffed partly by business/labor/industrial personnel; (7) using retired workers as resource persons in schools to acquaint students with the world of work; (8) work should become more personally satisfying to the individual worker; (9) every student leaving school should be equipped with a marketable job skill; and (10) every student leaving school should, if he desires, be able to find work. Various school visitation and teacher workshop agendas, a task force survey, and committee member listings are appended. (LH)
