Summary

This publication contains two papers presented during a conference for research coordinating unit (RCU) directors. "The RCU's Role in Implementing the Career Education Concept" by R.M. Worthington, discusses several functions that can be accomplished by RCUs, including: (1) disseminating information about career education, (2) providing consultative services and technical assistance to local districts, (3) helping local districts design evaluation plans, (4) designing and sponsoring research and development projects to develop, test, and validate instructional materials and program components for career education, and (5) planning, coordinating, and managing the states' overall research, development, and pilot testing effort in career education. "Vocational Education: Our Common Opportunity" by H.L. Hitt, traces the changes that have occurred in higher public education since the 1800's, argues that a great majority of students are poorly prepared for the standard college curriculum, and suggests that colleges and universities can either restrict their enrollments to those who demonstrate academic preparation and promise or can restructure their curriculum to provide for the needs of all students.
