Career Education: A Report.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
Activity learning strongly complements the idea of career education. Both have particular application to the high school, which is the most likely arena of educational change for the balance of this decade. In career education itself, school-based models are being tested in six cities and some 85,000 children are now participating in at least some career orientation activities. Four sites have been chosen for the employer-based model, which offers a new setting for academic studies and keys them to job experiences provided by a consortium of local employers. The third model, the rural-residential, enables low-income families in Montana and five neighboring States to learn new skills for better jobs, more effective homemaking, or further education. Still in the planning stages is the fourth model, a home-community effort that would use television and radio programing to encourage unemployed or underemployed adults to take advantage of local retraining programs. Adult education is certainly among our principal priorities for the 1970's. Other activities include development of instructional programs in career clusters, study programs for career education teachers and administrators, and 200 career education demonstration projects. All in all, our record in 1972 is presentable, encouraging in some aspects, and adaptable. (Author/MF)
