Inside Experience-Based Career Education. Personal Reactions to Non-Traditional Learning.
McClure, Larry, Ed.
Based on the personal experiences of individuals familiar with the day-to-day operation of experience-based career education (EBCE) in several states, the essays in this monograph are presented under three headings: (1) deciding to offer an option, (2) gathering community support, and (3) building an institutional framework. Part 1 includes articles by a school superintendent dealing with EBCE as a part of the educational mainstream, a school board member who describes EBCE as a part of general education, and an assistant school superintendent who discusses EBCE as a next step for schools to take in making education a comprehensive experience. Part 2 presents articles written by a labor leader who sees EBCE as a way to help young people understand the contributions of labor, a business manager who believes EBCE will pay off in terms of contributions to industry and society through better prepared and more satisfied job-holders, and a mother who discusses the impact of EBCE on her child. The third section includes articles written by a county career education coordinator who discusses blending EBCE into the school district program; a high school principal who discusses contributions of EBCE to the students, faculty, parents, and community; an EBCE staff member who discusses converting traditional teachers to EBCE; and an EBCE learning coordinator who describes daily tasks of an EBCE coordinator.
