Community Involvement in the Implementation of Career Education. Monographs in Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph shares experiences of participants in a series of fifteen "miniconferences" for local K-12 career education coordinators held January-July 1979 regarding community involvement in the delivery of career education. Six sections describe specific examples of how particular communities have, to date, responded to a call for involvement of both the home/family structure and of the business/labor/industry/professional/government community. These responses include (1) informing community members about career education and selling the career education concept to the broader community; (2) organizing for effective community involvement in career education; (3) organizing community career education advisory boards; (4) other examples of community involvement in career education, including use of community persons as classroom resources, career education experiences provided by business/industry organizations, and "one on one" contacts between students and persons from the business/labor/industry community; and (5) involvement of community organizations in collaborative career education efforts.
