The Georgia Plan for Career Education.
The paper treats career education more as a concept than as a program, an approach that cuts across all program areas and has potential for achieving many stated educational objectives. First, the term "career" is discussed, including the connotation it carries of a purposeful life pattern and of a continuous, integrating process. Second, career education is examined as a process through which an individual discovers himself, achieves a self-determined life goal, and acquires competencies necessary for achieving self-fulfillment. Third, the principles underlying the Georgia plan are outlined: (1) a comprehensive and integrated approach, (2) a developmental career education program, (3) integrated learning, (4) self development, and (5) value principles-those considered of prime importance to the career education curriculum.
