Business Office Occupations and Distributive Education: Keys to Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
Career education is stronger now than at any time in the past, but it is still faced with many challenges and problems. Among such problems, one of the most obvious is the relative slowness with which career education is being implemented at the senior high school level. Vocational educators, from every area of vocational education, must assume responsibility for making career education work in the senior high school. Career education calls for several changes in the teaching-learning process. The business and office occupations and distributive education fields can serve as models that have been built in ways that are already consistent with these kinds of changes. These fields have bridged the gap between those who regard themselves as academic educators and those who call themselves vocational educators. There are a number of ways in which today's business and office occupations and distributive education teachers could move to convert both academic teachers and vocational educators into career educators.
