Aspects of a Modern Business Education Program.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Business Education.
A collection of six papers by New York business educators deals with criteria for judging the completeness and effectiveness of a business education program. The curriculum, recruitment, program promotion, image, and other aspects of a comprehensive high school program are outlined by C. Irene Schindler. Karen R. Gillespie of New York University describes the well-prepared business student as meeting the demands of business through skills acquired in high school curriculum, work experience, and youth organizations. The philosophy, curriculum, and unusual aspects of the suburban Kings Park High School program are discussed by Neil V. McNeill. Louise M. Petraglia and Wallace Kravitz detail methods for incorporating reality into business instruction at Mineola High School. Business education in a rural setting is the topic of Joan M. Gray from Au Sable Valley Central School, Clintonville. Hobart H. Conover of the State Education Department analyzes the relevancy of curriculum to modern business practice and the need to monitor the effectiveness of programs. A concluding section identifies Future Business Leaders of America programs, cooperative work experience, and simulation as important components in education programs. Three-unit vocational course sequences are listed for seven career areas. (MS)
