Department of Defense, Washington, DC.; American Vocational Association, Arlington, VA.; Department of Education, Washington, DC.
These proceedings provide an overview of the major areas covered at a seminar on the relationship between vocational education and defense preparedness. Discussed first are strategies for improving collaborative efforts by vocational education and the Department of Defense for the purpose of increasing defense preparedness. The next five sections of the volume summarize the major ideas and outline the illustrative programs that conference participants introduced in their discussions of the following topics: a defense-related industrial base and Department of Defense active military forces, civilian employees, reserve military forces, and military accessions. Examined in the concluding chapter are the major points raised pertaining to each of these five areas as well as other roles for vocational education with respect to collaboration, outreach, and greater use of facilities and resources. Appendixes to the proceedings include a seminar agenda as well as remarks by the Deputy Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Education, the executive director of the American Vocational Association, and the Assistant Secretary of Vocational and Adult Education.
