Development of Model Career Education Programs Under Part C and Part D of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968.
Worthington, Robert M.
Every student in the Watertown, South Dakota School District is involved in a comprehensive career education program which was locally designed and implemented with technical and financial assistance from State and federal sources. The program is designed to help students become aware of and prepared for the world of work. The emphasis of career awareness and career exploration at the elementary school and junior high school levels is on individual development rather than career selection. Senior high school students focus on one or more career clusters and specific decision-making situations. Guidance and counseling services are provided as students develop career goals. Similar programs are being developed in Riverton; Wyoming; Cobb County, Georgia; Norwalk, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama and other places across the nation. Many are in their second year of operation while others are still in the developmental stage. Federal monies have been used to support these plus other programs including the school-based model effort being administered from the Ohio State University. Research Coordinating Units are playing a significant role in the development of programs within individual states. (Author/GEB)
