McCune, Shirley D.; And Others
This report describes conditions related to California's growth, diversity and economic development; assesses the current status of California's educational systems for students with special needs; suggests a conceptual framework for the employment preparation of children and youth; and specifies strategies for using the special needs program of the Career-Vocational Education Division as a leverage point for promoting broad change in vocational education. The report argues for a comprehensive view of quality in career-vocational education consistent with the state's needs as the first truly multicultural state in the nation. Finally, the report examines the role of career-vocational education programs in ensuring valued social roles for children with special needs. (74 endnote references.) (KC)
