Relationships between Career Education and Vocational Education. Monographs on Career Education.
The five papers included in this monograph represent an attempt on the part of the Office of Career Education to clarify differences between career education and vocational education. The first paper, "Everyone's Favorite Solution Can't Be All Bad--A Reply to James O'Toole," rebuts O'Toole's seven charges against vocational education. The second paper is "Career Education, Vocational Education, and Occupational Education: An Approach to Defining Differences." Concepts of work, career, vocation, occupation, leisure, and education are defined as they relate to career, vocational, and occupational education. Implications for change in vocational education in the academic setting are also discussed. The third paper, "Career Education and Work Experience Education: Can We Join Together?" discusses implications of the career education concept for work experience educators. "Business Office Occupations and Distributive Education: Keys to Career Education," the fourth paper, suggests ways in which business and office occupations and distributive education teachers could move to convert both academic teachers and vocational educators into "career educators." The fifth paper, "Career Education: Strategies and Dilemmas," summarizes the current status of career education and discusses basic attitudinal problems facing it. (TA)
