Career Education: Contributions to an Evolving Concept.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The volume gathers together in one source a collection of Kenneth Hoyt's published and unpublished speeches, articles, and papers which trace the development of Hoyt's ideas on career education. Following an introductory section, Part 2 deals with stages in the development of career education concepts: defining career education, career choice, common sense about career education, success factors of career education, the world of work as a component in career development programs, a conceptual view of career education, and differences in defining career/vocational/occupational education. Part 3 contains separate chapters directed to the parent, teacher, counselor, vocational educator role, and employer involvement in career education and the career education needs of minority, low-income, and handicapped persons. Part 4 focuses on the various challenges of career education at elementary, middle school, high school, community college, and teacher education levels. Part 5 contains chapters that examine the future of work and career education, answer the critics of career education, and evaluate career education's implications for instruction. A table of responses from educational leaders to "An Introduction to Career Education" (U.S. Office of Education draft document) is appended. (EA)
