The New World of Education and Work.
Bell, T. H.
In the past schools and colleges have tended to set themselves apart from the world of business and industry. Today, the national organization of resources for career education is receiving a new thrust. The vocational and educational needs of today's students are growing national concerns. The lack of emotional preparation for work as well as goal-centered plans on the part of the young call for new planning from the business-industry community as well as from centers of education. Career education programs have gained support throughout the nation and with Federal and State legislative support have begun to meet these needs. Cooperation of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and the Office of Education with the Department of Commerce and Labor can be seen as Federal leadership to hasten the collaboration of business, labor, the home, and the school or colleges to give Americans a sense of what work means, how to decide on a field of work and prepare for it, and then, finally, how to find a job.
