National Association of State Boards of Education, Washington, DC.
Addressed to State board of education members, this document discusses career education in terms of national models, evaluation, and implementation. Section 1 presents an overview summary of the research paper contained in section 2. The research paper is by Edwin L. Herr of the Division of Counseling and Educational Psychology, Pennsylvania State University. Topics discussed are trends that led to career education (technological complexity, self-awareness in choice, education and work), four national models, variations at the State and local levels, how career education really works, evaluating career education, and controlling and justifying the costs. The four models are: (1) the school-based or comprehensive model, (2) the employer-based or experience-based model, (3) the home/community-based model, and (4) the rural/residential-based model. Action alternatives presented in section 3 are recommendations to State boards made by the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE). Section 4 consists of footnotes and an annotated bibliography. (TA)
