Career Education: The USOE Perspective. Occasional Paper No. 4.
Bell, T. H.
The Center for Vocational and Technical Education initiated the Occasional Paper Series to provide educators and other interested individuals with information dealing with critical issues and problems surrounding the education of human beings. The interest of the center in the entire career education concept stimulated it to include in this series recent views on career education of Dr. T. H. Bell, U. S. Commissioner of Education, and the newly derived career education policy of the United States Office of Education as explained by Dr. Kenneth B. Hoyt, Associate Commissioner, Office of Career Education, Office of Education. Dr. Bell's paper cites examples of the unanticipated success of career education; expresses hopes that career education will be primarily a State and local matter; and points to the need for work to be done in the areas of improved quality, evaluation, and implementation, particularly at the high school level and among special groups. Dr. Hoyt's paper proposes career education as the response to criticisms of the present educational system, through the use of the concept of work. Basic concept assumptions are offered which will represent a philosophic base for career education, programmatic assumptions, suggestions for implementation, and specific learner outcomes which will involve basic educational policy changes.
