Summary

Since it is a lifelong system increasing the relevancy of basic academic subjects, stressing decision-making, and assuring everyone a marketable skill, the Office of Education believes that career education has potential for effecting a complete renewal of education. The Office has: (1) launched six pilot community projects; (2) asked each State to plan a model (school-, home-, or employer-based, or rural residential) with Federal funds; (3) appointed an investigative panel of scholars; and (4) contracted for a project with the University of Missouri to help States organize and conduct implementation workshops in career development guidance and counseling. A career education thrust requires top priority for redirecting and expanding guidance, counseling, and placement; a Bureau-produced catalog of areas of "national concern" suggesting the scope of attention and responsibilities involved in a systematic redirection is reinforced by Eli Ginzberg's critique of career guidance ("Few spend...significant time in activities designed to lead to improved decision-making"). A comprehensive and developmental program must be designed for outcomes that ensure freedom of choice for American citizens. (AJ)
