The NCRVE-sponsored Tech Prep Leadership Summit was held in Chicago, Illinois, June 22-23, 1992, and was attended by representatives from education; business, industry, and labor; government; private, nonprofit organizations; and professional organizations. The summit provided an opportunity for leaders concerned with the implementation of the Perkins Amendments to gather together and discuss the Tech Prep Education Act. This report presents the results of summit participants' deliberations on a "national vision" for Tech Prep (including purpose, outcomes, target audience, and implementation strategies) and a review of the summit's panel discussions. The report concludes with a description of strategies for implementing Tech Prep programs in urban schools and a discussion of unresolved issues raised during the summit.
