The Images and Realities of Career Education.
Parnell, Dale
It is important that career education goals and objectives be clarified and any present inaccurate images by changed. Career education can be defined as that delivery system which helps students develop the necessary competencies to function in the real-life role of producer or wage earner. Thinking in terms of competencies required to function effectively inlife roles is one way of avoiding "fuzzy" goals. Abraham Maslow talks about a hierarchy of human needs leading to self-actualizing experiences when their survival needs have been left unmet? The primary areas of accountability for the schools are related to the roles of citizen, consumer, learner, and wage earner; secondary areas include the renewing self, the physical and mental self, and the family member. Concentrating on the life role of the wage earner, career education must be an all-encompassing discipline which is not confined to single occupations or life styles. A good career education program provides options for all students, not just for the college-bound. Career education, an experiential and multi-interdisciplinary approach, helps students develop both competence and confidence. (EA)
