Academic Education Will Not Get It!
Perryman, Bruce C.
Two equally important and parallel developments have been working together: first, the emergence of a substantial and well-defined national role in career education and second, the explosive expansion of the system of career education. Career education first should provide meaningful, practical, open-ended career education in communities and regions and in other eligible institutions (profit and nonprofit) of education. Second, it should provide an effective strategy for marshalling the myriad of manpower programs that have been uncovered throughout the national government. To begin to implement innovations in career education for the 1970's, a two-edged approach is needed: the creation of a system-wide career education coordinator and the establishment of a new organizational unit. The career education system should stimulate enrollment in all performance-measured educational activity in our educational system, particularly those that follow through with job and community placement.
