Career Education--The State of the Art of Inservice Training.
Matilsky, Philip I.
The author describes four exemplary inservice programs dealing with career education for the handicapped, and reviews current issues in the field. Among programs cited are Project T.H.O.R. (Training Habilitators of the Retarded), a statewide inservice program for teachers and administrators working with the trainable mentally retarded; and the Vocational Education Inservice Training Project at the University of Kansas which has developed training packages for both vocational and special educators. Inadequacies in the development of career education inservice programs are seen to include absence of programing at the elementary level, and poor relations between vocational and special education personnel. Implications of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, on the field are discussed. (CL)
