Summary

Education in a technological society must teach its people to perform the work and provide the services required to maintain and further develop the society. It must also prepare its people to cope with the rapid change which new technology causes in their personal lives, such as occupational obsolescence, social mobility, world wide communication and social awareness, and others. The concept of career education has been developed in view of these demands of a technological society. Career education relates to all educational experiences from early childhood throughout the productive life of the individual. In early childhood it provides an awareness of the world of work and some direct, hands-on experiences to motivate the learner's interest. At the end of high school, the burden is on the high school system to give strong, positive assistance to students in obtaining job placement or placement in a post-secondary institution. The development of a career education system requires the accomplishment of differing objectives at each level of the existing school system, including public and private technical institutes, junior colleges, area vocational schools, and colleges and universities.
