Geddes, John A.
In spring 1975, a Task Force of 35 members was established as an advisory committee and idea generation group for the San Diego Community College District. At each of three meetings, the 35 members divided into five work groups led by a vocational coordinator discussion leader. This description of and master plan for the San Diego Community College District's Career Education and Retraining Division is based on the proceedings of these meetings. Chapter I gives a summary of population and business statistics for the County and City of San Diego, presents a description of the Community College Manpower Training and Vocational Education Department, summarizes campus vocational education programs, and reviews a recent needs assessment survey. Chapter II presents a philosophy of career education, and chapter III presents a consultant's summary analysis of manpower futures in the United States to 1985. Chapter IV presents goals and objectives for career education, including organization, instruction, cost-effectiveness, student services, and futuristics. Chapter V deals with the problem of allocating programs to specific sites, and chapter VI lists nine recommendations to the Steering Committee for Management Studies and Educational Master Planning.
