Career Education: A Position Paper on Career Development and Preparation in California.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Career Education Task Force.
The publication was prepared as a statement on the position of the California State Department of Education pertaining to the concept of career education. Career education is conceptualized as the bridge to relevancy between education and work; it moves the school out of the ivory tower into interaction with the total community. The position paper is further designed to provide the reader with an overview of career education in the State. The need for career education is identified and a philosophy established to accommodate that need. A great diversity exists in California schools; therefore, the proposed model for career education contained in the publication, with associated goals, components, and infusion processes, provides general guidelines for district- and school-level activities. Some other aspects of career education considered in the paper are: career education for adults, career education resources, process and product evaluation, staff development and management, and concern for racial and ethnic minorities.
