Problems in the Organization and Administration of Career Education Programs. Bulletin, Vol. 16, No. 1.
In this paper, an attempt has been made to define some of the difficulties and concerns which local school district administrators have to deal with in the implementation of a new program--career education. Career education is envisioned as a bold change of great magnitude, and there is a thrust for swift introduction of career education programs in school systems. However, schools usually cannot respond rapidly to needs for renewal or change. Some areas where problems will be encountered in the change process are: (1) interim and task force organizational structures and linkage-related issues, (2) staffing model problems including the difference between utilizing existing staff or recruiting staff, (3) continuity of organizational operations and maintaining expertise roles, (4) role conflict and the problem of alienation of the school principal, (5) teacher issues and teacher groups, and (6) community issues, particularly minority concerns.
