Refining the Career Education Concept. Monographs on Career Education.
Six papers prepared within the Office of Career Education during the period 1975-76 are contained in this monograph. The papers are presented in their order of preparation, each intended to make some contribution to refinement of the career education concept. "Career Education: A Crusade for Change" discusses the need for, nature of, and implementation of career education. "Career Education: What's Doable Now?" discusses current strengths of career education, initiation of community career education efforts, and current readiness of the career education concept (1975). "Career Education and the Marshmallow Principle" illustrates how this principle (internal commitment) is being accommodated in the basic strategies for accomplishing change embodied in the career education concept. In "Setting the Record Straight: A Reply to Grubb and Lazerson," discussion centers around what the author considers major errors in Grubb and Lazerson's "Harvard Educational Review" article on career education. "Obstacles and Opportunities in Career Education" identifies and comments on five major obstacles facing the implementation of career education and offers alternative solutions for overcoming these obstacles. "Next Steps for Career Education" comments on solidifying the career education concept at the elementary, secondary, and postsecondary levels. (TA)
