Louisiana Career Education Objectives. What Should They Be? Bulletin No. 1409.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Instructional Services.
While the Louisiana State Department of Education does not mandate the total scope of career education programs offered at the local levels, it is essential that a common core of ideas be promoted in order to assess the statewide progress of the programs. The bulletin presents goals and objectives for career and occupational development for ages 9, 13, and 17 based on the national assessment program for these three age levels. Career and occupational development objectives do not belong to a specific discipline but include preparation for making career decisions, improving career and occupational capabilities, possessing skills generally useful in the world of work, practicing effective work habits, and having positive work attitudes. Specific vocational skills have been purposely omitted from these objectives. Each objective for career and occupational development is listed in detail for each age level, with check points on student achievement at three critical periods in school careers: age 9, representing students at or near the end of primary school training; age 13, representing students at or near the end of elementary school training; and age 17, representing students who will soon be finishing high school training.
