Career Education. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Wilson, John H.
Focusing on implications for teachers, this document reviews significant research and the current status of career education. The information is divided into eight sections. An introductory section discusses the criticisms of the education system which formed the basis for the career education movement. The next five sections contain brief summaries of the following concerns: definitions of career education; goals and expectations of career education; major criticisms of the movement; problems in evaluating career education; and major research findings. (The research findings in this report emphasize an evaluation of the effectiveness of the career education curriculum in bringing about achievement within the basic academic skills domain.) In the last two sections the author summarizes his review by offering conclusions and implications for the future development of career education. (BM)
