Career Education - A Caveat
Higgins, Willian J., Jr.
Career education is for all people of all ages and has, as its common denominator, interaction among them. The concept underlying career education goes beyond academic and vocational activities to encompass the self actualization of each individual. Career education could be the vehicle by which a total view of the self worth of the individual is promulgated. It has been considered synonymous with relevancy but, although curriculum relevancy may provide the means for making a living,it won't bring compatibility with life's forces. We must reinstill the virtues of honesty, integrity, perseverance, humility, and personal courage. Educators must foster in each student a sensitiveness for his singular uniqueness and dignity in a meaningful and responsible relationship to his society and himself. (MS)
