(Re)constructing Career Education as a Socially Just Practice: An Antipodean Reflection
Irving, Barrie A.
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v10 n1 p49-63 Mar 2010
The author contends that career education has lost its way, and needs to be (re)located within a critical social justice framework if it is to effectively prepare young people to engage with the social, political and economic discourses that inform the shaping of "career(s)". Relating to the New Zealand context, differing versions of social justice are outlined, the challenges for career education explored, and the potential for change discussed.
