Summary

Career education is a comprehensive educational program which begins in kindergarten and continues through the adult years. The need for developing career competence and awareness starts long before the student reaches the community college age. To effectively reach all populations, career education must be integrated into the curriculum at all educational levels. The elementary and junior high school levels should concentrate on occupational orientation and an awareness of work roles and requirements, while the high school level should prepare for job entry and concurrently for further education. The post-secondary institutions must be designed to fit career aspirations and requirements by providing meaning and purpose to job preparation as well as by preparing some students for education leading to a baccalaureate and perhaps graduate professional preparation. Thus, from kindergarten through post-secondary education, students should receive a myriad of career opportunities and first-hand knowledge from which they will chart the course of their lives. Implications for post-secondary education are discussed. (SB)
