Carvell, Fred; Carvell, Joan
The Statewide study assesses the impact of career education in Illinois since 1970 and presents an analysis of information gathered about various career education programs and activities supported by the Illinois Divison of Vocational and Technical Education (DVTE). The initial chapter provides background information and describes the characteristics of the various information sources. Chapter 2 summarizes findings, recommendations, and responses. Chapter 3 provides information obtained from on-site visits, interviews, and written surveys determining which students have been affected by career education efforts. Chapter 4 summarizes the Elementary Occupational Information Programs (EOIP) study findings regarding local districts use of DVTE resources. Chapter 5 presents survey results indicating the needs of local districts for DVTE consultant services. Chapter 6 reviews career education projects funded by the U. S. Office of Education, the National Institute for Education, and the DVTE. Also included is information regarding future funding sources and the establishment of career education priorities in Illinois. The study concludes that the impact of EOIP funding and DVTE specially funded projects since 1970 has established the groundwork necessary for creating awareness of career education among State educators. Survey instruments, cover letters, and data summaries are appended. (MW)
