Career Education: Implications for Increased Educational Relevancy.
Taylor, Robert E.
There currently exist four alternative ways of delivering or facilitating career education goals, including the school-based, employer-based, home community-based, and residential-based models. The school-based Comprehensive Career Education Model(CCEM) is being developed in six local school districts, and its current objective is to develop and test a career education system (K-12) in these districts. During the 1972-73 school year, it is anticipated that 85,000 students at all grade levels will be exposed to approximately 100 curriculum units. The employer-based model is designed as an out-of-school alternative to career education for students aged 13-18. The goal of the home community-based model is to offer a career-oriented educational program to out-of-school youth and adults who want additional learning opportunities. This career-oriented program will be strongly supported by career development centers located in the community. The residential-based model is being designed to offer education as well as family life, community, health, and economic development services to disadvantaged individuals and families drawn from rural areas. Some of the implications of these models are discussed. (SB)
