Comprehensive Career Education. School Administrator's Guide.
The first of five documents developed as an outgrowth of funded programs for career education in Kentucky, the school administrator's guide offers an overview of career education covering goals, curriculum relevancy, components, roles, and stages of development. Some basic conceptual components proposed are: (1) self-awareness, (2) career awareness, (3) appreciations and attitudes, (4) economic awareness, (5) skill awareness and beginning competence, (6) decision-making, (7) employability skills, and (8) educational awareness. A holistic approach to the education of youth is suggested, integrating the home, school, and community into a total educational effort as a major goal of career education. The responsibilities of all members of the educational team from the board of education to the guidance counselor are described to insure cohesiveness in the step-by-step process of career development. In conclusion, the three phases of career education are defined: (1) the awareness phase in grades K-6, (2) the exploration phase at the junior high level, and (3) the preparation phase at the high school level.
