A Multicultural Response to Career Education.
Harris, Virgie Lee
This study was undertaken to provide information on the perceptions of the ethnic minority group member participants of the National Multi-Cultural Institute Conference relative to career education. A Career Education Inventory was developed to gather the opinions of the 400 participants about career education. The group included members of various ethnic backgrounds, representing urban and rural communities across the nation. A response in excess of 25% was obtained. At least for the sample studied it was determined that on the basis of the findings most ethnic minority group members have knowledge of and hold positive attitudes toward career education. The sample indicated that the career education concept would meet the needs of ethnic minorities. However, most of the respondents indicated the need for additional information concerning career education, and called for an expansion of career education programs in schools, as well as the involvement of parents, business and community in career education activities. (The survey instrument, accompanying letter, and feasibility study are appended.) (Author/LH)
