The Implementation of Career Education in the General Business Classes of Cache County Junior High Schools

Katie Graham


Career education is the goal of the seventies; the direction education will take, and the force that can give new meaning to all teaching techniques and classroom instruction. More significantly, career education is the new power that can change for the good lives of all students by assuring that every young person completing high school would be ready to either enter higher education or to secure useful and rewarding employment (17, p. 21). However, as emphasized by May, career education is on the launch pad and the count down has started, but the ultimate responsibility for getting career education off the ground lies with the classroom teacher (18, pp. 67-68).
