Summary

A statewide career education needs assessment was done in Tennessee by surveying all superintendents and samples of principals, teachers, and community leaders. State employment security data and Career Maturity Inventory (CMI) scores for a sample of the state's ninth graders were secondary information sources. The primary conclusion was that the idea of utilizing career education as a motivational device to increase the relevance of academic content for students and to prepare youth for a smoother transition from school to work has broad appeal throughout the state. Survey respondents indicated that the chief obstacle to the implementation of career education programs was the lack of funds, which resulted in limited staff training in career education and lack of curriculum materials. The recommendations made by the respondents focused on provision of state funding for (1) dissemination of information about existing career education materials, and purchase by school systems of some of these materials; and (2) personnel to spend time in the field organizing staff training in the use of career education materials and techniques.
