The major questions of policy in matching the nation's educational system with its employment needs during a period of rapid change for both are explored here by eighteen authorities in public and private education, industry, organized labor, and government. Among the vital issues addressed are: the responsibilities of various educational agencies, career planning, the effects of the economic climate on career education, the use and misuse of certification and credentialism, the interface between general and career education, and the need for more "generalizable" education. The book's ultimate objective is to explore how the fullest and best education for both work and non-work roles may be delivered in both traditional and nontraditional ways."
