State Plan for Career Education.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
The document presents Louisiana's 1973 State Plan for the development of career education. It is intended that State guides will be developed to improve all aspects of the daily curriculum and that revisions will be made to the "Handbook For School Administrators." Further, preservice and inservice programs will be established for teachers and counselors. The components of the plan are threefold: K-12, vocational-technical, and college and university education. K-12 is designed to be an experience-based, sequential plan involving six phases: career awareness; career motivation, career exploration, tentative career decisions, acquisition of career-entry skills, and career entry. Objectives are listed for each phase and possibilities for experience and information are suggested. The vocational-technical component includes secondary and postsecondary education. Objectives and purposes are stated and a plan for implementing the program is outlined. College and university education will develop certificate and degree programs in technical, career-oriented disciplines as well as take a major role in preparing school personnel to implement career education. Plans are also included for a needs assessment of education, human relations, and interpersonal skills. (KH)
