Career Education in a Large Urban Setting, 1976-1978. Final Project Report.
Detroit Public Schools, MI.
A two-year project was conducted to develop, implement, and evaluate a model demonstration career education program in a large urban setting (Detroit Public Schools). Major activities involved in the first year (phase I) included the following: (1) selecting fourteen target schools to be served; (2) determining the needs and specific career education training requirements for all students, teachers, administrators, counselors, and community members who would be involved in the infusion of career education in the schools; (3) developing a training program for those participants who must implement the school program in the second project year (phase II) (activities included workshops for teachers, administrators, counselors, and community members; a series of community/business training sessions; and a series of sessions for parents and students to be served in the target schools); (4) creating and selecting materials for immediate implementation in the schools during phase II; (5) creating active support on the part of the community, business, industry, labor, and other agencies; and (6) establishing a school-wide information system. The thrust of the second project year (phase II) was to implement all aspects of the program developed in phase I. (This final report is divided into two sections. Section I provides an overview and summary of the entire project, and section II contains eleven subsections, each detailing a project task outlined in section I.) (JH)
