The Status of Career Education in Georgia.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta.
The Georgia plan considers career education not as a program but as a concept cutting across all other program areas, with potential for achieving a variety of educational objectives. The underlying principles are those of a comprehensive, integrated approach to education, a developmental focus on individuals, and the integration of subject matter with work and other life roles and values. Through this concept, all educators assist each individual at every level to progress toward a personally meaningful and productive career. The status report by the Career Education Task Force provides information on many facets of career education in Georgia, including, in addition to early childhood and special education, elementary, secondary, and vocational education, such components as administrative leadership, guidance, educational television, library services, adult and vocational education, adult basic education, and improvements necessary to continue the career education movement. The report notes the importance of the role of teacher colleges, and includes information on participation of student teachers in area career education programs. The format provides objectives, policies, plans, and operational procedures which facilitate career education, and statistical data. A State Board of Education policy statement and procedural guidelines are offered. (AJ)
