A New Paradigm for Rural Education: Career Education.
Taylor, Robert E.
Career education recognizes the centrality of careers and how career selection determines where one works and lives, one's associates, and other dimensions which are significant in defining one's life style. Curriculum is regarded as systemic--an integrated and cumulative series of experiences designed to help every student achieve increased: (1) power to make relevant and informed decisions about his life, and (2) skill in performance of his life roles (economic, community, home, avocational, religious, and aesthetic). Career education is a viable paradigm for determining educational purpose, sharpening expected outcomes, and organizing and deploying the educational and community resources in the rural setting. Briefly discussed in this paper are the: (1) definition of career education, (2) strengths and limitations of educational delivery systems in rural settings, (3) major research and development accomplishments in career education which have implications for educational programs in rural settings, and (4) development of programs and products. Among the topics covered are: 4 major theories of career development (trait factor, sociological, personality, and developmental); 4 career education models; career guidance for minority youth and women; and staff development models.
