Section III provides a proposal for generating funds necessary to conduct a comprehensive college-level manpower study. Section IV provides a set of recommendations in the area of special education and human services relating to career opportunities. Finally, section V provides a model whereby three State Colleges link their efforts in improving services in the area of special education training.
