A Plan for Career Development in the Public Schools of the District of Columbia. Task Force Report on Vocational Education.
District of Columbia Board of Education, Washington, DC.
To design a plan for implementing recommendations for vocationally oriented programs at all educational levels, and specialized vocational training directed toward specific career objectives, an 18-member task force reviewed recommendations from several studies, conferred with vocational education specialists and school administrators, and conducted a public opinion survey among students, teachers, and the community. Major task force recommendations were: (1) Design a sequential pattern of career development for all levels which is closely related to the world of work and continuing education institutions, (2) Institute a 5-year plan of curriculum and staff development for implementing the career development program, and (3) Secure funds and initiate planning for constructing a career development center. Conceptual schemes are provided for career foundations at the elementary level, the career cluster concept, career survey at the junior high level, and career exploration and preparation at the senior high level.
