Career Education: New Approaches to Human Development.
Bailey, Larry J.; Stadt, Ronald W.
The book is a digest of individual and group philosophies, research, and recommendations aimed at providing a knowledge base concerning the evolution and implementation of a systematic career development and education model which facilitates human development, tentative selection, and the realization of meaningful careers. It begins with an analysis and synthesis of educational criticism and recent responses to outside forces, stressing the concepts of educational excellence, relevance, and accountability. The core of the book entails brief historical and detailed theoretical treatment of three interrelated matters: career development, the foundations and evolution of career education, and models for career education and curriculum development. Within these broad areas, the following concepts are examined: theories of career development and occupational choice; factors affecting career development; career development needs of special groups (women and the culturally disadvantaged); historical perspectives (vocational education to 1962); foundations of vocational education; the emergence of career education; the function and place of career education; fundamentals of curriculum development; a developmental curriculum model for career education; and implementing change in education.
