Attitudes of Educators and Community Leaders toward Career Education Concepts, Methods of Delivery and Community Involvement.
Olson, Linda Ann
A study was conducted to ascertain educators' and community leaders' attitudes toward the inclusion of selected career education concepts in elementary and secondary curricula. Further purposes were to determine their opinions toward the methods to be employed to deliver career education. An opinionnaire was used to survey educators and community leaders in one small community and one large community in Wyoming. Among the findings was that community leaders and educators rated all statements favorably to indicate the inclusion of the seven career education elements (self-awareness, decision amking, educational awareness, economic awareness, career awareness, beginning skill competency, and employability skills) in the school curriculum. In addition, educators and community leaders agreed on the method of delivery as integration of career education into the curriculum on both the elementary and secondary levels. They also agreed on another method of delivery--a separate required course at the secondary level. (The opinionnaire is appended.) (LRA)
