Career Education--North Kingstown. A Model for Open Education and Community Responsibility. Final Report.
North Kingstown Public Schools, RI.
From June 1973 to June 1975 the development and implementation of a Model K-14 career education program was attempted in the North Kingstown Schools in Rhode Island. Project objectives included the development of career and self-awareness, provisions for exploratory and work experiences, provisions for job placement at graduation, and provisions for counseling services at all levels. Public controversy concerning the project-developed elementary manual precluded the attachment of project goals, and funding was not renewed for the third year. The major results of the project are presented in terms of a series of recommendations and conclusions about development and infusion strategies for programs that seek to make changes in educational institutions. One-half of the report consists of appended materials: (1) a 4-page program implementation check list, (2) a 9-page report of the career education advisory committee, and (3) 90 pages of local news coverage which chronicle the course of events in the school-community controversy.
