Career Education at O.S.S.D. A Study of Needs and Plan of Action for Career Education at Oregon State School for the Deaf.
McKinlay, Bruce; And Others
Recognizing a need for improvement in their vocational education offerings, the administration of the program for the deaf appointed a study team representing backgrounds including education of the deaf, manpower research, public administration, and occupational analysis. This report presents their specific analysis and recommendations for a comprehensive plan for career education which will lead to higher and more diversified employment for the deaf. The plan calls for guidance and exploratory opportunities and puts heavy emphasis on the student's choice of a career field. It integrates "academic" and "vocational" courses and individualizes the program. Reports based on an extensive analysis of both educational opportunities and labor market conditions are included in the report. (GEB)
