Career Education and Elitism.
Batmale, Louis F.
Historically, general education has held a higher status than career training. Vocational programs were modeled on those existing in trade schools, while general education stressed personal development. At present, career education has gained greater acceptance and status. Present occupational programs have improved due to greater experience of the staff and better planning. No longer is a liberal arts education required to precede career career training; personal and social development can now take place effectively in occupational programs, enabling one to develop one's ability to think and communicate effectively. In the future, individualized programs in career education will be available to all individuals who need them. Students will assume greater responsibility for their education, pursuing in-depth study in various fields. Another anticipated development will be the incorporation of ethnic studies as an integral component of liberal arts studies. (SE)
