Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1974 
55 p. 

One of a series of special studies by Project Baseline, a national effort requested by Congress to gather information about vocational education and manpower training, the report traces the career education movement, beginning with a few isolated State and local activities in the mid-1960's and following it through the decade as it has become implemented in each State. The career education continuum is discussed, touching on career awareness, occupational exploration and preparation, career guidance and counseling, and placement and followup. Reviewing the state of the art nationally, several State programs, model developments, and curriculum developments are described. Four models are presented with a discussion of some of the problems encountered: (1) the school-based model, (2) the employer-based model, (3) the home/community-based model, and (4) the rural/residential model. A review of information needs and an analysis of Federal funding goals and criteria is offered and findings regarding the role of the National Institute of Education in supporting career education activity are tabulated and discussed. Concluding the report is an evaluation of the future prospects for career education as a catalyst for change. (MW)
