Programs for Occupational Education for Grades 9-12 at Milford, Massachusetts.
Engelhardt, David F.
An occupational education and career education program was planned for the new Milford, Mass. high school in which "occupational education" was defined as stressing training and guidance for occupations requiring no more training than up through the fourteenth year. The program provides for the half-day student and for the 5- or 10-period per week student. Accommodation could be made for the associated student who needs the facilities but is not enrolled in an occupational education course for grading purposes. Half-day students would take a concentration in a cluster of specialized programs or in one specialized course. The shorter-time students would take exploratory or acquaintance specialized programs. Both would select programs from the instructional programs specified in the document. The programs include: child care; geriatric care and domestic service; housekeeping, attendant work, and food serving; drafting and design; occupational graphic arts; cabinetmaking, furniture repair and fabrication, and upholstery; electrical skills and electronics; small motor, appliance, machine, and instrument repair; building and grounds maintenance; automotive services and small engines; air conditioning and refrigeration; distributive education; bookkeeping/record keeping; office occupations; data processing; and entrepreneurship and managerial work.
