The Cultivation of Careers Through Guidance and Vocational Education. Information System for Vocational Decisions. Project Report No. 18.
Tiedeman, David V.
An enlargement of the understanding of the career for the individual is necessary in order to put the imperative need of work for everyone more into perspective. First, secondary education in 1980 needs to be taken, not as a high school education but rather as an educational process reserved for those in need of an interdependent, not completely independent, learning experience in order to progress in the expansion of their intelligence and career according to their own purposes. It is proposed that this secondary education take place in a Learning Resource Center (LRC) with the basic instructional aid being an Educational Machine. Counselors at the LRC would help the individual to convert his learning into real life experiences. The education machine would provide the series of"dress rehearsals" which a person needs in career in order to achieve realization of self processes in the choice processes of career. The ultimate goal for this program includes the integration of community resources for the common good, individualization of instruction, and education for individuality (including therapy or education for the mentally ill) leading to the fostering of identification, the fundament of identity.
