Career Education for Persons in Rural Areas. Primary Focus on Adults 16 and Over. Third Party Evaluation Report.
North Central Technical Inst., Wausau, WI.; Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education.
The third party evaluation report focuses on the second year activities of a three-year exemplary project in career education conducted by the North Central Technical Institute (NCTI). The project was designed to provide career education activities to the adult population of an economically depressed rural area in north-central Wisconsin. Job upgrading and retraining, career information dissemination, and inservice education were carried out through workshops, counseling, classes, group sessions, displays, tours, and informational meetings. Initially, the report deals with such areas as communication, adults 16 and over, women, agency cooperation, NCTI staff, school participation, and personnel. The second part of the report is concerned with the results of the efforts of the staff in selected elementary and secondary schools in the NCTI district. Overall, the school systems accepted the project consultants and the concept of career education, although with varying degrees of effectiveness. This acceptance was regarded as an indication of the need for such services. It was found that the efforts of the project staff were often frustrated by the personal characteristics of the target population, as the staff was prevented from dealing with them in groups such as classes or other captive situations.
