Career Selection Education Program, 1965-1968. Report.
Digneo, Ellen Hartnett, Ed.; Shaya, Tila, Ed.
Career Selection Education Programs were conducted during the 1965-66 school year at Cloudcroft and Weed High Schools under the direction of personnel from New Mexico State University, and at Cliff High School under the direction of personnel from Western New Mexico University. These programs were designed specifically to enable young people in small, rural schools (1) to have an opportunity to gain information about job opportunities and (2) to assess more adequately their own individual capacities to fit into the world of work. Some sources of vocational information were field trips, interviews, films, tape recordings, and group guidance sessions. A series of reports was submitted annually by staff personnel at each operating location. The programs at Weed and at Cloudcroft High Schools were continued during the 1966-67 and 1967-68 school years; the program at Cliff High School had to be discontinued at the conclusion of the first year because of lack of funds.
