Ruth Volz, in "Vocational Education for Our Ageless Society," examines the need for developing programs and training to meet the unique needs of older Americans. The third article, by Betty Smith, is entitled "The Meaning of Work: Past, Present, and Future with Implications for Education." Next, "The Vocational Teacher Educator - An Endangered Species?", by Vickie Johnson Brown, examines the need for appropriate measures to be taken to assure the credibility and reliability of the teacher educators in meeting vocational needs in America. The fifth article,"Human Relations Versus Productivity--A Vocational Education Issue," by Ruth Richardson, discusses the relationship between human relations, competence, and productivity. The last essay, "Benefit/Cost Analysis," by Virginia Hatch, discusses this approach as a part of the decision-making element of educational planning. (JH)
