Career Education: Challenges for Counselors.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The author contends that in the past counselors have put an undue emphasis on describing students by their characteristics with a relative lack of emphasis on understanding them through their behavioral accomplishments. Career education challenges all counselors to correct this imbalance because it is action-centered and experience-oriented. The author proposes that the action orientation of career education calls for more "action-oriented" counselors. It also encourages the use of classroom resource persons from the business-labor-industry-professional-government community, and makes career guidance the proper business of the entire school, community, home and family. He concludes with remarks regarding the new role counselors must accept if career education is to be a success. (Author/HMV)
