The Current State of Career Education at the Postsecondary Level.
Goldstein, Michael B.
Prepared for the National Advisory Council for Career Education, this report of a study on the current state of career education at the postsecondary level provides an overview of how American colleges and universities perceive and practice career education, together with a set of recommendations for action to encourage and facilitate the adoption and implementation of this concept. The report contains an aggregation of interview responses elicited from institutional officers, faculty, administrators, and students from a cross-section of colleges and universities including public and private schools; 2-year, 4-year, and graduate institutions; and those representing various purposes, sizes, and geographical areas. Based on the study, l4 findings are outlined and discussed; 10 recommendations are made for what the Office of Career Education in particular and the Federal government in general can do to encourage and facilitate the acceptance and adoption of career education. Career education in the context of higher education, and career education perceptions and practices are discussed in detail. An exemplary list of Federal programs with the potential for providing support to the development and implementation of the career education concept at the postsecondary level is provided. (TA)
