Career Education: A Tool for Meeting the Needs of Special Populations.
This report on the role of career education as a tool for meeting the needs of special populations contains a series of five reports on the special career education needs of various groups of students. Discussed in the first chapter, on career education in the heterogenous classroom, are the need to expose students to middle class life, to encourage basic skills development, and to eliminate stereotyping. In a report on women, education, and work the educational and employment needs of women are outlined. The impact of poverty on youth and the role of career education in alleviating this impact as well as the cultural and linguistic barriers affecting American Indians and Hispanic Americans are described in a report on the subcultures of poverty. The career education, training, and job placement needs of handicapped students are examined in a report on exceptional students. The final report, on migrant children, covers the life-style and special career education needs of these children. Each report contains a bibliography of resources for classroom use and a list of agencies or units with which career education should form linkages to meet the career education needs of special populations.
