Career Education: A Maturing Concept. Second Interim Report of the K-12 Project in Career Development and Bridging the Gap Between School and Work, Watertown, South Dakota.
Carlson, Clayton D.
The second interim report of the Watertown, South Dakota, public schools career development project covers the year ending September 13, 1972. This second year continued program development and implementation and began dissemination of project information. Individual development was emphasized in the elementary and junior high programs, with specific decision-making situations explored during the senior high school years. Occupational information centers in the junior and senior high school provided information and counseling services. Career counseling for school-alienated youth, with work experience and similar programs at the secondary level, helped these students to evaluate their future. Acceptance of career education concepts in the schools carried over into the community. Included in this document is the evaluation team report on the project with detailed appraisals of each project objective. Among the recommendations the committee recommended that the various counseling activities be combined in one counseling center, eliminating the distinction between "career" counseling and "academic" counseling.
