Career Education Catalog. Annotated Listings of Selected, Diverse, and Innovative Programs.
Hewett, Kathryn D.; And Others
Descriptions of programs in this volume were compiled to increase awareness of innovative career education practices. The listings attempt to describe what happens in programs which meet or succeed standards of innovation; programs which represent a range of sizes, student characteristics, budgets, funding sources, locations and emphases. Descriptions are collected in three sections: (1) Comprehensive public school programs, involving all or most schools of a city or district; (2) supplementary public school programs, which generally are smaller in scope, and may be designed for a particular group or age of student or may be developmental and involve limited numbers of teachers or administrators; and (3) alternative and community-based programs, which provide combinations of skills training, career counseling, and basic education, usually in settings outside the traditional public school system. Publications or documents which provide more information about their operations are listed with each description. Where the publications are not available directly from the program, sources are supplied. Preceding each of the three sections is an index displaying basic program information such as size, budget, funding sources, student and staff numbers, and grade levels. (TA)
