Career Education and Vocational Education: Similarities and Contrasts. Monographs on Career Education.
Evans, Rupert N.
The fact that career education and vocational education must rely on each other will not prevent conflicting views, due in part to their different genesis, goals, and types of persons served. Educators and evaluators of education should recognize that career education is now faced with a dilemma which many vocational educators have been unwilling to recognize: That it is extremely difficult to prepare workers who are both conformists and change agents, i.e., the question of job conformity versus job reform as goals of education. Even modest programs of career awareness, exploration, and preparation are likely to afford both blue- and white-collar workers new ways of looking at work as well as new opportunities for mobility. Career education and vocational education share the goal of making work possible, meaningful, and satisfying for everyone. (Author/TA)
