Summary

Career education is based on the idea that all educational experiences, curriculum instruction, and counseling should be geared to preparing each individual for a life of economic independence, personal fulfillment, and an appreciation for the dignity of work. Properly adapted, career education can increase the opportunities available for the exceptional youth and adult, as it does for all citizens. Five levels of career education are identifiable, each with a strong emphasis on career guidance: career awareness, career orientation, occupational exploration at both the secondary and the postsecondary level, and adult and continuing education. Equal career education for the handicapped may not be the same as for those without disabilities, for the same career education program may result in less than equal educational opportunity. Career guidance must be responsive to the needs of all in-school youth, including exceptional youth and adults. A pamphlet entitled Suggested Utilization of Resources and Guide for Expenditures assists in reporting and planning programs and services for disadvantaged and handicapped persons. Special programs such as Project Career Education/Handicapped, Project SERVE, and the Occupational Training Center in St. Paul help in the education and training of all so that each individual can develop the competencies of self-sufficiency, normal living, and citizenship.
