[Career Education: A Retrospect and a Prospect.]
Marland, S. P., Jr.
Today's harsh economy gives a spirit of urgency to the call for an effective harmonizing of occupational development with academic learning. Whether we as teachers or administrators are in agreement or not, the evidence is very clear that our students expect their college years to yield occupational as well as academic outcomes. It is time that we bring system and order, curricular strength, and philosophical unity to a condition that remains in many places ad hoc, unsystematic, and not consciously and deliberately responsive to the lifetime needs of learners and wage-earners. Within the past year, the College Entrance Examination Board has taken two integrally related steps toward becoming a significant force in career development during the remainder of this decade, and, perhaps, on into the 1980's. The first consists of a State-level study of career education now in its final stages. The study is exploring a number of barriers to full implementation of career education at the State level. The College Board is also attempting to come to grips with a concrete service to the process of career education. We have studied numerous institutions across the country to identify good linkages between schools and the workplace. The list of worthy sites where career education is finding a prominent place is nearly endless. (Author)
