The Changing Secondary Education Scene: Implications for Vocational Education Research and Development. Occasional Paper No. 22.
Fallstrom, Charles M.
Half of this paper is the text of a lecture based on the author's philosophy of career education and stimulated program development, which he indicates was formulated during years of rapid change in our high schools. From his experiences as principal and instructional leader he draws conclusions regarding (1) common learnings which remain the heart of the curriculum (communication skills, quantitative skills, and the American heritage, history, and culture), (2) the need for career awareness programs to be a part of the curriculum from K-12, and (3) the need for community-advisory councils established to assist in planning and implementing programs in career awareness, consumer awareness, and vocational entry-work skill programs. The second half of this paper consists of the author's answers to five questions from the audience of educational research and development personnel. (HD)
