Legal Issues in Experience Based Career Education.
The report of first-year problems and potential solutions, based on a study of legal issues which arose in the development of employer based career education (EBCE) programs, is presented as a working draft from which certain policy questions and priority issues may be delineated. Federal statutes and the statutes of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, California and Oregon, where EBCE programs are in operation, were researched, and issues are confined to only those of reasonable importance to current projects. Five chapters examine public versus private school sponsorship; financing; forming a career education program (compulsory education, licensing and accreditation, curriculum requirements, course requirements and choices, students' rights and responsibilities, student protection, employer liability, transportation, teacher certification and responsibilities); labor issues in EBCE programs--the student's status on an employer site; experiences with legal issues of current EBCE programs (including organization patterns, workman's compensation, student reimbursement, child labor laws, curriculum, physical facilities, school lunch, and student records. A summary and conclusions are presented in chapter 6. A summary of compulsory attendance regulations and the Far West Laboratory Agreement with Oakland Schools are appended. (NH)
