The Career Education Policy Project (CEPP): Connecting Educators, Policymakers, and the Public. Annual Evaluation Report. Final Report, July 1, 1975-June 30, 1976.
To inform and interconnect educational practitioners, knowledge-makers, policymakers, and the consuming public around the issues and potential of career education, the Career Education Policy Project (CEEP) collaborated with several existing programs to expose out-of-town leaders of the career education movement to the federal policymaking process. In the project year ending June 1976, the project (1) aired four well-received one-hour "Options in Education" broadcasts on career education and related themes over National Public Radio, (2) conducted two Washington Policy Seminars, (3) supervised the activities of three state-based and three city-based associates who conducted seminars and other activities for policymakers, and (4) sponsored two visits of senior Congressional and agency officials to career education sites (as well as two dinner meetings featuring nationally known experts). The activities elicited favorable reactions from participants and audiences. They demonstrated, however, that the career education movement suffers from predictable growing pains. As it gains acceptance in public educational circles and, unsurprisingly, in business and industry, it continues to cause some confusion among politicians, lay groups, and the public at large whose support is essential if it is to make a real difference in American education. The problems of definition need constant examination. The project did much for the illumination of key career education questions; much work in presenting career education's excellent case still needs doing. (The "Options" scripts are appended). (JT)
