Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1976 
71 p. 

The study is concerned with the career education provided for exceptionally gifted and talented students in Illinois, is exploratory in nature, and adheres to the descriptive survey method. Following a review of related literature, results of the reports and opinions were gathered from educational administrators by questionnaire and interviews. Major conclusions are these: (1) Literature indicates that 1966-76 was a period of increased interest and activity in both career education and the education of exceptionally gifted and talented students, but not until the end of the decade does the literature reflect much concern for differentiated career education experiences for these students. Current programs and practices in this area are few in number and tend to be isolated. Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida appear to be leaders in providing these students with differentiated career education programs. (2) Interaction between educators primarily concerned with career education and educators primarily concerned with educating the exceptionally gifted and talented students is insufficient to achieve cooperative programs or integrate their efforts. Practices found to be most effective with these students are identified. The questionnaire and interview guide are appended, and educators' responses are listed in tables. Six recommendations based on the findings and conclusions are made to the Illinois Office of Education. (TA)
