Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monogrpah examines the first 10 years and probable future of the career education movement in the United States. The first part outlines changes that have occurred in the 1970s in the following areas: definition of career education, defining skills to be delivered by career education efforts, career education/vocational education relationships, community involvement in implementing career education, role of classroom teachers in career education, reduction of bias and stereotyping, the kinds and magnitudes of change called for by career education, federal support for career education, career education/organized labor relationships, involvement of postsecondary education in career education, and assessing the effectiveness of career education. In the second part the following five issues affecting the future of career education are discussed: (1) the extent to which national priorities will be devoted to the supply versus the demand side of the supply/demand equation, (2) career education's role as a vehicle for increasing school/community partnership efforts, (3) career education as a vehicle to effect basic changes in the formal education system, (4) overcoming current major deficiencies of career education, and (5) future availability of sound professional leadership for career education at the state and local levels.
