Blueprint for Career Preparation. Update
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
This "blueprint" was developed to provide educators in Florida with a unified vision of where career education is heading. It is designed to address the increasing gap between emerging job requirements and the ability of Florida's work force to meet them. It was developed to prepare students for the world of work, a competitive global marketplace that is changing every day. It is also designed to enable all high school graduates to get a job. The blueprint provides a rationale and framework for career education, sets goals, and suggests practical methods of achieving them for each grade level. It also advocates school-business partnerships and describes some possibilities. Following a statement of the Department of Education's commitment to leadership, the blueprint sets out a 6-year plan for action to enable all schools in Florida to participate in the plan. A glossary, a chart comparing rates of growth in occupations between 1984 and 2000, and a 23-item bibliography are included in this document. (KC)
