Career Education Now.
Marland, Sidney P., Jr.
Despite a growing role for vocational education as technological change causes skill requirements to rise, society continues to treat vocational education as inferior to academic education. In a broad sense, all education is career education, providing the skills necessary to live. Until all forms of education can be integrated in a comprehensive program of career development, an interim strategy involves four major actions: (1) redirecting federal support toward state programs for high demand occupations, (2) providing broader programs to improve flexibility of career choice, (3) improving coordination with business and organized labor, and (4) increasing support for career education at all levels.
