Career Education: Leadership Roles.
Burkett, Lowell A.
With the upsurge of interest in career education and its implementation at all educational levels, the need for leadership in setting goals, establishing policies, and implementing programs is apparent. This paper devotes itself to a discussion of the position which leadership must take for a full expression of the possibilities in the career education concept. The need for skillful leadership is explored in the following areas of career education: (1) community relations, (2) educational administration, (3) teacher education, (4) curriculum development, (5) educational media, (6) guidance, (7) personnel training, (8) work experiences, (9) advisory committees, and (10) adult education. Career education will provide an opportunity to bring relationships of life, education, and employment into a harmonious balance. The job of leaders in the field therefore, is to foster in Americans an awareness of this interrelationship. (SN)
