Improved Career Education Policies through the Collaborative Efforts of Business, Industry, Labor, Government and Education. A Communications Project. Final Performance Report, October 1 1978, through November 30, 1979.
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, and 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. Four 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). Two additional reports are forthcoming. (An interim performance report is available as CE 024 173.) (YLB)
