Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.; Arizona State Advisory Board for Vocational Education.
Career education was officially established in Arizona during the 1971 legislative sessions. Three goals of career education, as stated by the state advisory council, are to help students: (1) learn to live, (2) learn to learn, and (3) learn to make a living. The program is available for students at all levels of education, from kindergarten through the university, and includes awareness of the world of work, broad orientation to occupations, indepth exploration of selected career clusters, and career preparation for all students. This document briefly describes the career education program in Arizona, particularly the 13 pilot programs funded by a $1.9 million allocation beginning in July of 1971. (GEB)
