Career Education as a Site of Oppression and Domination: An Engaging Myth or a Critical Reality?
Irving, Barrie A.
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n3 p24-30 Spr 2011
While discussions of social justice have become more prominent in the general career literature in recent years, little attention has been given to where the topic "fits" within career education and, more specifically, how it affects career advisers in schools. Drawing on the findings emerging from research in New Zealand, I examine career education from a social justice perspective, and consider whether it should be regarded as a site of oppression and domination.
