Refining the Career Education Concept, Part IV. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph presents the fourth annual summary of "Refining the Concept of Career Education" attempts. The seven papers included are intended to provide readers with an historical record of career education in 1979. The first paper, "Lessons Learned from Participants in the 15 YETP/Career Education Mini-Conferences," represents some of the Office of Career Education's efforts to develop and encourage closer and more productive relationships between the Youth Employment Training Program (YETP) and the Career Education Incentive Act. The second paper, "Liberal Arts and Career Education Revisited," points out that career education and liberal arts education are not natural enemies. In the third paper, "Contrasts between the Guidance and Career Education Movements," similarities between these two fields are discussed as well as possible avenues of further development available to both. Career education as a community effort is discussed in the fourth paper, "School Volunteers and Career Education: Some Conceptual Thoughts." In the fifth paper, "Career Education for Exceptional Individuals: Challenges for the Future," the Office of Career Education reinforces its commitment to exceptional individuals. The last two papers illustrate what might have been had congressional appropriations been made at their authorized levels. These two papers are titled "Community Colleges and the Career Education Incentive Act" and "Strategy Considerations for Implementing the K-12 Portion of the Career Education Incentive Act." (BM)
