Career Education; A Nebraska Model at Milford Public Schools.
Willis, Larry F.
Some of the career education activities which have taken place during the first year of a comprehensive K-12 program involving 780 students in six schools are summarized in the report. The program, developed for a rural community (Milford, Nebraska, population 1.850), had six objectives designed to produce career exploration and involved practical occupational experiences for students, an instructional model, counseling and placement services for students and community members, and inservice education. The project was evaluated using the pretest, post-test method. Components briefly described are: (1) inservice program, (2) new program implementation, (3) highlights of first semester (list of guest speaker, project, and field trip activities for all grades), (4) conceptual career education model program (emphasizing the concepts of self, career orientation, and world of work), (5) Milford Information Center which provides students, parents, and dropouts with career, job placement, and educational information, and (6) the K-12 counseling and guidance program. A three-page list of career education references and materials is included. Appended are the conceptual model, titles of teacher-produced units, description of the counseling and guidance program, one secondary and three elementary teaching units, and an information center newsletter.
