Career Education and the Business-Labor-Industry Community.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The two areas of expertise involved in career education--education and work--make it obvious that career education cannot be effective if only educators are involved. That is why, from the beginning, career education has been pictured as a collaborative effort involving educators, the business-labor-industry community, and the home and family structure. Career education is needed for two basic reasons: (1) The world of schooling and the world of paid employment are out of kilter in the United States, and (2) the increasingly technological nature of society and rapid rate of change make it necessary that persons seeking to work be equipped with a combination of adaptability skills that will help them with change, and a set of job-specific skills that will enable them to enter the labor market. In its simplest form, career education is an attempt to help all individuals want to work, acquire the skills necessary to work in these times, and engage in work that is satisfying to the individual and beneficial to society. If the business-labor-industry community will join actively in this effort, it can become a reality. (TA)
