Career Education...A New Emphasis for Utah Schools.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
The publication is a result of the Utah State Board of Education's task force efforts and provides an overview of the State's career education projects and activities. It describes the position of the State Board of Education and its role in assisting the implementation of local programs of career education. A definition of career education and an operational philosophy is presented and the major components and seven basic goals of career education are identified. It is asserted that the chief benefits of career education will be realized only when articulated programs have been developed on a K-adult basis and career education has become a vital part of the activities carried out by every teacher in the State. It is also proposed that teacher education be an on-going process using inservice teacher orientation. Also discussed is the development of career education teaching methods and career curriculum planning with a built-in evaluation system. In a concluding section on community involvement, it is suggested that planning and developing district career education programs should involve representatives from the guidance areas, all curriculum levels, and representatives from many segments of the community--the world of business, industry, and labor.
