An Examplary Program for Career Education: Interim Report.
Vandersypen, John J.
A rural, economically depressed parish in Louisiana has attempted to establish in two elementary schools, one junior high school, and three high schools a program in career education. The project directed its focus on three particular areas: in-service training of teachers and administrators; public awareness and involvement; and teacher/student participation in the infusion of career education activities. The report concludes that the major accomplishment thus far has been the actual implementation of a career education program and its acceptance by students, teachers, parents, and other community members; this acceptance is deemed crucial to the successful establishment of such a program. The report includes 208 pages of appended materials, including: a bibliography; relevant forms, tests, questionnaires, and correspondence; career education newsletters; information on teacher/administrator workshops and conferences; resource materials and activities (36 pages); suggested scope and sequence; a sample of part of the English curriculum (41 pages); and a third-party evaluator's report (64 pages). The report of the evaluator (Educational Planning and Evaluation Services of Magnolia, Arkansas) includes statistical information on the students and personnel and on the results of both student and teacher tests; it also presents a specific summary of its findings, conclusions, and recommendations.
