Career Education--Feminine Version.
Simpson, Elizabeth J.
The author, chief, Curriculum Development Branch, Division of Research and Demonstration, Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education, USOE, offers several specific steps which need to be taken in order to improve career education for women: (1) from preschool on, females should be encouraged to pursue their own intellectual interests; (2) employed women from a wide variety of occupational fields should serve as resource persons; (3) new student text materials which include a variety of life styles and roles, including a variety of occupational roles for women, should be developed and tested; (4) counselors should be made more aware of the significant role that they can play in helping girls develop their potential for employment; (5) all training programs should include opportunities to prepare for the dual role of homemaker-wage earner; and (6) alternatives and supplements to in-school instructional programs should be developed to expand training options and opportunities for both sexes. Permeating all career education programs should be a concern for moral and ethical values as they relate to occupational choice, job performance, and related life style. (Author/PC)
