The Status and Progress of Career Education.
Crawford, Robert L.; Jesser, David L.
The second national project in career education to be sponsored by the Council of Chief State School Officers was intended to provide for continued collaboration with State directors/coordinators, to add significantly to the body of career education knowledge in the various States and State education agencies (SEA), and to strengthen State leadership. It attempted to ascertain the status of career education in the States, the use of newly developed curricular materials, trends of growth, and State evaluation methods. Information was obtained exclusively from SEA personnel responsible for career education, as the SEA is considered to be the critical agency within the educational system's organizational hierarchy. From the available data (presented and discussed in the report), it is concluded that the general status of career education is good. The data suggest that there have been gains for career education in the various States in these areas: (1) SEA career education positions, (2) numbers of pupils involved in career education, (3) inservice teacher programs, (4) State legislation, (5) appropriation of State funds, (6) use of Federal monies, (7) State plans, (8) State advisory councils, (9) evaluation techniques and instruments, and (10) establishment of career education as an SEA priority.
