The New Partnership--Academia and the World of Work.
Bell, T. H.
President Ford's pledge to bring education and employers together in a new climate of credibility requires the cooperative planning of the Departments of Health, Education, and Welfare; Commerce; and Labor. Sidney P. Marland's idea of career education is receiving a new thrust. The concept of completing an education within a certain time span is out-dated. Proper emotional preparation for work as well as goal-centered plans for today's youth will involve planning from business, industry, and education. Proper occupational guidance is a basic need; career education will expose the world of work to students in the early years of their formal education. The idea of work must be central to education, and young people must be trained to think in terms of employment, yet never losing recognition of the fact that it is the individual's view of his productivity that is fundamental to the career education concept. The cooperation of the three Federal departments is an illustration of Federal leadership to hasten cooperative efforts at the local level to develop in young Americans a sense of what work means, skill in decision making to prepare for work, and ability to find a job.
