A Futures Perspective on Employer-Based Career Education, 1971-2000.
Rhyne, R. F.; And Others
Employer-based career education (EBCE) aims to familiarize students with a number of jobs and prepare them for those occupations by exposing them, first-hand, to various careers. Specifically, its goals are: 1) to reduce gratification lag by allowing earlier participation in occupations; 2) to aid students toward a responsible occupational choice by exposing them to several job experiences; 3) to provide knowledge, attitudes, and generalized skills which are necessary for a variety of entry-level jobs, and 4) to provide a total educational system, preparing students either for immediate employment or further education. How such a program would function and what success it would have depends on what the future in this country is like. Here, six "scenarios" of the years up to 2000 are outlined, tracing possible trends in personal values and the nature of the government. The way each scenario would affect EBCE's goals and assumptions is then discussed. (JK)
