A System for Installing Occupational Experience Programs in Local Schools.
Mannebach, Alfred J.
The purpose of this paper is to provide an awareness of the broad variety of educational programs which use the community or the work environment as a part of the curricula, to help school officials realize the benefits of using the work environment to enhance the educational program, andto suggest ways of installing occupational experience programs--either general work experience or cooperative occupational education--in local schools. Properly funded, conceptualized, planned, coordinated and implemented occupational experience programs are one of the great "untapped resources" for making education relevant for many students. Some type of occupational experience program should be an integral part of every school system in the nation. (Author/PC)
