Vocational Education for the 1970's; Conference Discussion Paper.
Crum, Dwight R.; And Others
Vocational education in this decade must be conceptualized as life-long career development for every person who can profit from such a program. A framework for a career education system must be provided that will introduce the world of careers, provide exploration, guidance, counseling, provide specific skills, provide pre-technical and more technical education, and upgrade and retrain throughout adult hood. Objectives of vocational career development and the goals of vocational education are identified. Upon these, proposed elements of a career education model are stated. Some of these components are: (1) Career education will replace general education, (2) Priority will be given to special target groups, (3) Career education will begin in the elementary grades and continue through life, (4) Job placement and followup will be a continuous school function, and (5) Effective and continuous evaluation is required. To effect this system, the present vocational education delivery system must be modified. (GEB)
