Collaboration in State Career Education Policy Development: The Role of Business, Industry and Labor. Report No. 117.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
This booklet, the first in a series of four, reports the information obtained during a national survey regarding the current state-level collaborative efforts of business/industry, labor, government, and education in career education planning and implementation. Following a brief introduction and an overview of the collaborative process (with some examples), the content is presented in three sections. The first covers the data collected from the state career education coordinators, including a table summary of the state-by-state responses regarding existing policy, policy development in process, and the involvement of business, industry, and labor. The next section presents the responses from the business/industry and labor communities and includes a table summary of data regarding current involvement in career education activities, the involvement of state officials, initial reasons for becoming involved, and factors that encouraged involvement. Responses from thirteen career areas are covered, including agribusiness and natural resources, business and office, communications and media, manufacturing, and public service. The last section briefly summarizes the survey findings and presents Task Force on Career Education recommendations concerning the recruitment of business/industry/labor representatives, diversity and representativeness, the establishment of a common agenda, the collaborative process, and a knowledgeable coordinator.
