Two Studies on the Role of Business & Industry and Labor Participation in Career Education: Enhancing Business and Industry Participation in Career Education; Issues and Strategies for Enhancing the Participation of Labor in the Implementation of Career Education.
Hensley, Gene; Schulman, Mark
The first paper contained in this document, entitled "Enhancing Business and Industry Participation in Career Education," addresses the following topics: Interrelationships between business, industry and schools, issues in strengthening the collaboration of education and business and industry, problems and possibilities of increased interaction, and strategies for increasing the participation of business and industry in career education. The second paper, entitled "Issues and Strategies for Enhancing the Participation of Labor in the Implementation of Career Education," is based on research conducted with labor organizations, educators, and the literature on career education. The paper approaches the relationship between career education and labor in two ways: The issues behind the relationship are discussed on theoretical, conceptual, and operational levels, and strategies to consolidate and/or modify the "action" plan of labor participation in career education are explored. Short-range implementation suggestions are made and long-range implications are discussed. In the concluding section, issues and strategies are brought together in an assessment of the future prospects of career education in relation to past realities and present possibilities. (TA)
