While policymakers and scholars may argue over the extent to which our education and training system fails to prepare individuals to participate fully in the new economy, few disagree that improvements are needed. The National Center for Research in Vocational Education (NCRVE) sponsored The Policy Planning Exercise on Education and the New Economy in 1997 so that vocational-education researchers, federal and state vocational-education officials, leaders of nonprofit organizations with an interest in this area, and representatives of the business community could discuss options relevant for education and training. This report highlights participant discussions.
