Career Education: The Role of Vocational Education and Industrial Arts.
Worthington, Robert M.
New Jersey has long been a leader in vocational-technical education and support by the State government continues. The Nation's education system fails to prepare young people for careers; it costs us $28 billion a year to "educate" them for potential failure. Career education offers a new approach. Made up of five overlapping levels, fifteen career clusters, and four research models, career education activities are strongly encouraged by the Office of Education. Career education, industrial arts, and vocational education are linked by supporting legislation. Various government-sponsored programs, task forces, and conferences having to do with industrial arts are in progress. Career education is not the same as vocational education; it is for persons of all ages from the first school year through adulthood. (MS)
