Summary

This Region I conference called by the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, brought together 240 participants from six New England states to discuss how career education needs of youth and adults and the needs of the economy are being met, to determine the role of vocational education in the process, and to identify methods of redirecting education in the 1970's so that secondary students will be prepared for immediate employment or further education. The general consensus of the 2-day conference was that education is not meeting the needs of people, the needs for manpower, nor the needs of the economy. The concept of career education appears to be the most popular approach to the infusion of change in the educational system, but the many definitions of career education are creating communication barriers to the development of processes and are stimulating fears that the term will eventually water down all existing good practices that are proving effective in meeting a fragment of the needs. Additional recommendations and summaries of conference activities are included. Related reports are available as VT 013 385-013 387, VT 014 205-014 209, and VT 014 228 in this issue. (SB)
