Fintzy, Leonard I.
To provide the baseline data for the construction of a conceptual career education model for the Yonkers public schools, an extensive delphi technique survey was conducted during the school year 1973-74. Hundreds of students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community people were asked to respond to 35 statements categorized into five areas: awareness, development, competence, core, and responsibility. The results for each statement in the survey are presented in tables which comprise a large part of the document. The Yonkers Career Development Project combined this data with other relevant research found in the literature to generate a conceptual career educational model illustrated in the document; the specific data obtained in the survey generated seven goals of career education which provides the model's bulwark. They served as the framework from which behavioral objectives, tailored specifically to meet the individual needs of students, were identified. A listing of these instructional objectives makes up most of the remainder of the document. An historical and philosophical overview of career education introduces the project survey; a very brief summary of the project concludes the document. (AJ)
