Career Education in Business Education: 2. Methods for Involving the Business Community.
Poland, Robert, Ed.
The nine articles in this monograph deal with techniques for increasing communication between the professional world of business and business education with respect to career education. The first article stresses the need for communication between schools and the related business community. In the second article school-related experiences that involve both the related business community and the school are reviewed and their implications for career education delineated. Work experience programs and vocational youth clubs are discussed. The next four articles focus on possible assistance from advisory committees, community-related programs, professional business organizations, and labor unions in career education. Organizations and their available services are briefly discussed, and source (and address) of additional information is identified. The seventh article presents ideas on effective use of the government by business teachers in delivering career education. The eighth article offers suggestions for collaboration from the business community and development of workable linkages between business and schools. In the final article these vehicles for community involvement are proposed: work experience models, work experience for teachers, job placement, and development of high quality career materials.
