Counselor Impact on Career Education in the Elementary School.
Fulton, Barbara J.
This paper is concerned with the counselor's impact on career education in the elementary school. It stresses the importance of career education in contemporary society. Career development is enhanced by career education, which in this paper means organizing the basic subjects, K-12, around the theme of career opportunities and requirements in the world of work. Some goals of career education include: (1) making education relevant to the individual; (2) assuring the opportunity for the individual to gain marketable skills; (3) increasing options upon departure from public education, and (4) utilizing community resources. Elementary school counselors must involve themselves in career education through career awareness, including a knowledge of the self and of the work world. Elementary children are in the process of defining and formulating vocational values and choices. Career education and guidance is necessary to aid them in skills, interests, and attitudes.
