Career education is the focus of this transcript of an electronic weekly magazine devoted to coverage of news, features, policy, and people in the field of education. This program transcript incorporates studio interviews with Sidney P. Marland, Jr. (who was U.S. Commissioner of Education in 1971, and coined the term "career education"); Kenneth Hoyt (Office of Career Education); George Weber (Council for Basic Education); George Butsike (United Steel Workers of America); Eugenia Kemble (American Federation of Teachers); and Reese Hammond (International Union of Operating Engineers). Discussion covers definitions of career education and business and labor attitudes toward concepts and practices of career education. Also, Richard Terrel of General Motors is interviewed; views from a teachers' meeting on career education are presented; and Congressman Carl Perkins of Kentucky discusses his reasons for supporting career education. A review of the pamphlet, "Liberal Arts in Career Education--A Look at the Past and the Future," concludes the program. (TA)
