Smith, Bettye P.; Katz, Shana
Career and Technical Education Research, v30 n3 p189-211 2005
The purpose of this study was to determine the extent that the Georgia Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) employability standards were included in the family and consumer sciences (FCS) curriculum. This study included 262 secondary teachers. Teachers were asked to indicate if in their teaching the employability standards were not an objective, an incidental objective, an important objective, or a major objective. Results showed that 24% of the participants identified the employability standards as major objectives in their teaching whereas, 76% identified them as important objectives. There were no significant differences found on any teacher group based on years of teaching experience and the seven areas within the employability standards. However, teachers with 21 to 30 years of teaching experience had the highest overall mean on the seven areas of the employability standards. (Contains 3 tables.)
