Career Development Education K Through Post-Secondary and Adult Education.
This paper is based on the premises that comprehensive career development programs for kindergarten through post-secondary and adult education must be developed in order to meet individual and societal needs, and that for many youth, career development experiences represent a core around which other school experiences might be organized and made meaningful. In considering these premises, the following topics are discussed: (1) career development needs at various educational levels, (2) sequential career development objectives at different educational levels for six dimensions, including self-characteristics, occupational area, educational avenues, decision making, economic and social values of work, and psychological and sociological meaning of work, (3) assumptions and developmental tasks to consider when organizing the school around a career development theme, (4) five operational principles regarding curriculum development, staff organization, and preparation, and (5) nature, structure, and implementation patterns at different educational levels. Several recommendations concerning career development programs are included. (SB)
