Vocational Education and Career Education: The Uncertain Connection.
Bice, Garry R., Comp.
This report summarizes a project undertaken to differentiate between career education and vocational education, to end confusion among educators, legislators, and the public about similarities and differences of the two, and to examine the various points of potential linkage between them. Part 1 enumerates the needs that this project tried to meet, its overall goals and specific objectives, and the procedures that the project staff and its advisory committee followed. Part 2 focuses on the efforts of the American Vocational Association (AVA) to clarify the scope and concept of career education by creating a task force and yearbook and including journal articles and convention speakers on career education. Also included in this part is a summary of the papers solicited from state associations and sub-groups within AVA, and a copy of the paper "Articulation of Career and Vocational Education: The Role of Professional Organizations," by Alberta Hill and Jerry Keiser. Part 3 consists of five papers dealing with the relationship of the two educational areas by Charles J. Law, Jr., Samuel Osipow, Grant Venn, Robert Lathrop, and Robert E. Taylor. Part 4, which synthesizes the literature, the papers submitted by commissioned authors, and the position papers from major interest groups, defines career education and its relation to vocational education in the areas of scope, clientele, persons involved, administrative responsibilities, and curriculum.
