Career Education and Organized Labor. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.; And Others
The three papers compiled here provide educators and others involved in career education with some information regarding the relationship of career education and organized labor. The first paper, a conference speech by Peter A. Bommarito, President of the United Rubber Workers, presents an official policy statement on career education from the rubber, cork, linoleum and plastic workers. The second paper, by Dr. Mark Schulman of Antioch College, comprises one-half of this monograph and covers the problems organized labor faces with respect to career education. The content of this paper is in three parts. The first part discusses the issues regarding the relationship between career education and labor and includes theoretical, conceptual, and operational considerations; the second part explores the short- and long-range implications of strategies to consolidate or modify labor participation in career education; and the last part offers tentative conclusions and summarizes the paper's content. The third paper, by Kenneth Hoyt, Director of the Office of Career Education, presents the views expressed by members of organized labor at a seminar dealing with the role and function of organized labor in the career education effort. His paper focuses on seven topics, some of which are the following: the kinds of career education activities in which organized labor should participate; how the K-12 school system should obtain resource persons from organized labor; organized labor representation on community career education action councils; and involving organized labor on career education field trips.
