Career and Vocational Education in the 1980s: Toward a Process Approach. Final Report.
Bailey, Larry J.
A broad outline is presented of process education, defined as a humanistic view of education focusing on the learner and the development of those skills which are believed to be central and important to functioning in the reality of present and future decades. Also discussed is how career and vocational education might be incorporated in such a global paradigm. Historical attempts to define the purpose of American education are summarized and then related to the development of career and vocational education. A developmental curriculum model for career education is presented as a means to the integration of process and career education. Scholars, researchers, curriculum theorists, and policy makers in career education are challenged to build on the theories and trends identified in developing a more humanistic educational system.
