Career Education.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
Career education combines vocational, general, and college-preparatory education into a curriculum designed to provide educational experiences that will prepare an individual for economic independence, personal fulfillment, and an appreciation for the dignity of work. Career education will be integrated in the early school years, beginning with kindergarten and progressing through Grade 12. In the elementary years, the curriculum will relate reading, writing, and arithmetic to the ways adults earn a living, and during junior high school years, students will explore career opportunities in various occupational clusters. By senior high school, students will concentrate on one cluster, developing sufficient skill in a specific occupation to qualify for a job. Even though the students are preparing for a job upon graduation from high school, they will always retain the option of going on to higher education. (SB)
