Career Education Project. Final Report.
Callahan, Ronald F.
The Buffalo career education project is presented in two parts, the final report and the summary evaluation. The components of the program described and analyzed in the report are: (1) infusion of career concepts into the existing curriculum; (2) vocational skill training for entry jobs; (3) business, labor, and industry contribution to career education goals; (4) career development programs to help students make decisions; and (5) efforts to use home and family structure in the occupational society. While success in each component varied according to the particular school and counselor, all components were incorporated into the programs of each school and an overall satisfactory stage of development was reached. The summary evaluation considers the Buffalo Career Education Project for its three years of existence, from autumn 1972 through spring 1975. Holland's theory of vocational choice was used as the basis for much of the data collection, with a pretest/posttest approach to evaluation. Tabulated results of the tests are appended, showing a significant increase in student knowledge about vocations and specific jobs. (Author/MF)
