Career Education: Involving the Community and Its Resources.
Burt, Samuel M.
This exposition of the activities of school administrators and teachers for uniting the school and community presents career education as a new system of public education. Basic changes suggested in the organizational and administrative structure of local education agencies focus on the following requirements: (1) a director of school-community relations, (2) a general advisory committee to work with him, (3) designated school in each geographic school district for developing community involvement, (4) district advisory committees, and (5) organized activities that will modernize school-community relationships. These activities include a series of partnerships between specific employers and people in education, allowing for short-term commitment where necessary in order to involve as broad a base as possible of community and school personnel. Community resource workshops for participants are recommended to provide participants a forum for learning, interchange of ideas, and development of cooperative programs. The name and address of the executive secretary of the National Community Resource Workshop Association is given for readers who want detailed information on organizing and conducting such a workshop. Training seminars for volunteers in the school programs are discussed and recommended. (Author/VT)
