The Career-Centered Curriculum for the Vocational Complexes in Mississippi. Interim Report.
McMinn, James H.
This project was designed to develop and demonstrate to teachers, administrators, and the public, a coordinated and integrated program of career development from Grade 1 through post-secondary vocational-technical education, in order to give impetus to the development of career-centered curriculums for vocational complexes in Mississippi. The procedure views the levels of occupational education as a pyramid, with students making decisions about careers based on broad exploratory experiences and counseling. As choices are narrowed the experiences become more intensified. A remedial program is operated for students who are identified as potential dropouts in order to equip them with the competence and skills necessary for pursuing further vocational training. It was concluded that the exemplary project made important progress in developing skills which will serve as a basis for continuous growth and advancement in chosen careers, and it was recommended that funding should be continued for the second year of operation.
