Comprehensive Personnel Development for Career Education.
Worthington, Robert M.
Career education is a bold design for education effecting a blend of academic, general, and work skills learning so that individuals passing through the school system will be ready for economic self-sufficiency, for a personally satisfying life, and for new learning experiences appropriate to career development and avocational interests. The comprehensive model designed for career education is revolutionary; equally revolutionary will be the reforms to take effect in methodology, teacher-student relationships, administrative planning, and community participation. Realizing that these reforms will rely on trained staff, the Bureau of Adult, Vocational and Technical Education is committed to a comprehensive personnel development program for career education. Among the activities of the Bureau which support needed staff development are: (1) teacher-training grants, (2) special project grants, (3) Area Manpower Institutes for the Development of Staff (AMIDS), (4) curriculum development programs, (5) exemplary programs and projects, and (6) leadership development grants.
