Summary

At this Region VIII conference called by the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, 150 participants from six western states met to discuss how career education needs of youth and adults and the needs of the economy are being met by schools in their communities, to determine the role that vocational education is playing in the process, and to identify methods of redirecting education in the 1970's in order to prepare students for immediate employment or further education. The consensus of the 2-day conference was that the present educational system is not adequately meeting the career educational needs of students, particularly for those who choose careers requiring education and training at less than the baccalaureate degree level. Regarding the integration of vocational-technical education with general or academically-oriented education, concern centered around the possibility that an integrated system at the elementary and secondary levels would be focused on orientation to work, vocational guidance and exploration, but would fail to be specific enough to acquire an entry-level marketable skill and would delay specific preparation until postsecondary level. Summaries of conference activities are included. Other regional conference reports are available as VT 013 385, VT 013 386, VT 014 205-014 210, and VT 014 228 in this issue. (SB)
