A Model for Education for Occupational Proficiency.
Coster, John K.; And Others
This paper delineates the problems confronting professional personnel in occupational education in attaining the national goal, expressed by Congress, to provide optimum employment for each individual who is able to work. Preparation for occupational proficiency is conceptualized as a continuous process that begins with entry into the school system and continues throughout the individual's career. Curricular experiences are integrated continuously so that the relevance between school and work is readily visible. Thus, traditional dichotomies are obliterated, and the essential continuity of educational experiences is emphasized. The problem of integrating the individual's decision process into the curriculum is a basic step in attaining the national goals. (BH)
