Summary

One area wherein administrative commitment to innovation can be developed is in the field of career education. Career education is a useful concept that can unite the private, public, and work lives of individuals in a meaningful manner. In order to develop the concept of career education and its meaning, new ideas and procedures as well as changes in the thinking of policy makers and administrators is necessary. Some of the ideas that have to be understood are: infusion, policy, change, authority, and history. The role of the administrator, commitment, involvement, plan development, implementation, evaluation, and redesign are all components necessary to effect change in the educational unit and to make career education successful. Strategies for securing administrative commitment to innovation include: organization constituency approach, organization methodology, and authority-reality-problem approach. Securing administrative commitment also involves other considerations which could be improved through an in-service program for line administrators. (Author/EC)
