Career Education: A Guide for School Administrators.
Smoker, David E.
This guidebook is based on a 1971 seminar on career education for school executives and is designed to provide practical advice on how the school administrator can use the career education concept in a particular school setting. Career education is a constructive concept that may be adopted by any school system in the country, using its existing human and material resources, if it has strong leadership willing to change traditional attitudes and ways of doing things. It is a concept in harmony with the traditional goal of American education, to provide every person with the opportunity to develop full potential through educational programs that meet individual needs. This booklet includes the career education model, or the cradle-to-grave instructional continuum, depicting five overlapping stages from kindergarten to adult and continuing education. Other chapters present reasons for the schools' adopting career education, rewards and problems, the school administrator's leadership role, some ways of implementing the program, and sources of information and assistance for career education.
