Relevance in the Education of Today's Business Student. National Business Education Yearbook, No. 11.
Maxwell, Gerald W., Ed.; Winnett, William L., Ed.
The current emphasis in education is on career education and exploring the most effective means for preparing youth to become self-fulfilled and contributing members of society. The major factor leading to this educational priority is the increasing demand for relevance in the entire educational structure. This Yearbook was prepared within the conceptual framework of relevance. Its basic theme is dialogue between business educators and those segments of society most concerned with business education: the students themselves, parents, entry-level employees, teachers and supervisory personnel, members of the business community, and other community leaders. Each chapter contains a set of interview transcripts followed by a reaction statement by a business educator. The last chapter presents the editors' reactions to the dialogues and to business education as it moves closer to relevance. (MF)
