Career Education Handbook for Rural School Administrators.
Edington, Everett D.; Conley, Howard K.
Career education is defined in this handbook as a comprehensive educational program wherein the student's attention is focused on careers, beginning in grade 1 or earlier and continuing through the adult years. It is noted that the expected outcomes of career education are that every student will develop the competencies necessary for life and for making a living. Implementation of an integrated career education program is described in terms of the administrative plan, curriculum development, instructional development teams, pupil personnel services, the school organizations and activities program, placement services, staff development, community involvement, advisory committees, and evaluation. Three levels of career education programs are discussed: (1) the program designed for the elementary school, which should be developmental; (2) the junior high school program, which is basically explorative; and (3) the high school program, which is built upon the cumulative experiences of the student and which provides opportunities for investigating careers in depth. Lists of career development materials and audiovisual and instructional materials are included, along with copies of suggested resource questionnaires, data card file forms, and letters to be used in developing a career education program.
