Improved Career Education Policies through the Collaborative Efforts of Business, Industry, Labor, Government and Education. Career Education Program Project Performance Report. Final Report, October 1, 1977-January 31, 1979.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
To assist states in developing political/educational linkages that are basic to the implementation of career education, a national project was designed with three objectives: (1) to determine the nature and extent of the participation of business, industry, and labor in career education policy development and program implementation in each state, (2) to identify, classify, and report federal and state policies, laws, and regulations that have implications for planning, financing, and implementing career education at state and local levels, and (3) to develop, recommend, and facilitate alternative approaches to strengthening state education policies and legislation through the collaborative efforts of the constituency of the project. Information was collected through interviews with representatives of business, industry, labor, government, and education through a mail survey of agencies, individuals, and organizations. A twelve-member task force of nationally recognized experts and leaders of business, labor, industry, education, and government monitored all project activities, made recommendations based on collected data, and encouraged their use by individual constituencies. Reports of survey findings and the model legislative and policy alternatives developed from their synthesis were published in a series of task force reports and recommendations (see note). Dissemination included direct mailing; consultative assistance; presentation at state, regional, and national meetings; and national media publicity. (The process evaluation report is included.) (JT)
