The speakers' remarks and the subsequent discussion at this seminar centered largely on the book, "The Boundless Resource: A Prospectus for an Education/Work Policy," by Willard Wirtz and the National Manpower Institute (1975). The seminar was intended to provide a setting wherein the postsecondary education community could develop a plan of action for improving the relation between the educational experience and the work experience, particularly for young people. Major presentations were on the relation of college studies to jobs, prerequisites for change, authority and the advisory role, legislation for reform, purpose of career education, leadership for councils, meaningful jobs for young people, and portable benefits for lifetime work. The report reproduces verbatim comments and responses from the floor in addition to the presentations. (TA)
