Career Education: Strategies and Dilemmas.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The current status of career education combines continued interest and enthusiasm with problems and shortcomings relating to implementation, quantity and quality of programs, attitudes, and the need for collaboration. Four major attitudinal problems currently face career education. The problem of costs arises from those who think anything inexpensive is not worthwhile and from those who expect major educational change to be accompanied by massive Federal support. The problem of control is brought on because various labor, business, and educational organizations want a say in determining the materials and methods of career education. A third problem involves various educational factions feeling that something will be taken away from them by career education, that a collaborative effort will nullify their special skills. The fourth problem concerns the promises made (and, generally, left unfulfilled) by career education to students, teachers, parents, and society at large. (PR)
