El Conocimiento Ocupacional y del Yo para los Grupos Especiales. Monografias sobre el Conocimiento Ocupacional y del Yo.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This Spanish translation of ED 132 428 includes the three papers representing Office of Education attempts to face the need for improving delivery of career education to special portions of the population. New additions are brief sections on basic definitions and additional considerations of the significance of work. The first paper, on career education for minority and low income persons, states that career education for this segment of the population has been a matter of over-promise and under-delivery. Promises and problems are discussed as conceptual, process, and programmatic assumptions of career education. The second paper, on career education for gifted and talented persons, discusses special problems involved in program development, such as career decision making, the development of talent, and work experience. In the third paper, on career education and the handicapped person, statistical predictions concerning under-employment and unemployment of handicapped high school graduates during the next four years are cited to emphasize the need for making career education opportunities available. These basic career education principles are stressed as particularly relevant for the handicapped: the right to choose from a wide range of personally meaningful work opportunities and emphasis on accomplishments and discovery of an individual's talents rather than limitations.
