Career Education: Suggested School-Industry Programs.
Mumford, Donald, Ed.
The document, produced to aid Ohio communities in linking their schools' kindergarten through secondary career education (CE) programs with the needs and interests of local General Motors (GM) plants, defines some central concepts of career education and discusses successful, cooperative interaction between industry and career education. The focus throughout the brochure is on various aspects of GM operations. The following concept areas are to guide the development of school-industry cooperation: (1) education and training as related to one's career choice, (2) economics as related to career choice and the responsibility of the worker to industrial economics, (3) employability and work-adjustment skills, and (4) the sequence of development of decision-making skills. Three outlines for linkage are offered: (1) implementation of CE-GM Corporation linkage; (2) format for development of local career education: GM plant-city programs; and (3) suggested list of student performance objectives to aid in evaluating CE-GM linkage activities. Activities are suggested for plant involvement in career education programs, and a sample career education program at a Packard electric division is outlined. A map illustrates the relationship of Ohio career education program sites to General Motors Corporation plant sites. (Author/AJ)
