   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Tpdar Rapids Gazelle: Sun.. July 21, 1974 This Type of Career Education Is New By Judy Daubeumier After Adam and Eve were Judy Daubenrnier y Willis, recently director of career education at Kirkwood (.'onimnniiy col- lege, believes in doing some- thing to ease that shock. "We've done a relatively good job in teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, the three Rs." Willis said. "But many .students are coming out of high school with BO kinds of. skills to become employed, as well as a very narrow perception of the ca- reer opportunities available to them." The school's need to be ac- countable for ils use of tax- payers' dollars demands that that situation be changed, he said. by design or by chance, only two kinds of edu- cation have been offered one vocational and one aca- demic. Both secondary and post-secondary education have 'tracked' people into those areas with no option of explor- ing both he said. Career education, which is now spreading across the country, could change this sit- uation. Willis came to Kirkwood from .Miiforii. Neb., where he was director oi career edtica- lie also worked as a cor.- sultant in cooperative educa- tion for the -Nebraska depart- ment of education vocational division. A definition of the term ca- reer education offered by Willis says it consists of all ;he educational experiences limHisih which one learns about work. It continues throughout elemen- tary school to retraining pro- grams. Career education could be started in elementary schools with a program to develop awareness of work roles. Stu- dents could study clusters of occupations, such as public service mailman, fireman, and policeman. Junior high students could begin an exploratory project oriented towards the world of work which included work ob- servation in the community. Senior high students could participate in a pre-career ex- ploratory program, such as the one planned by Kirkwood this fall. Students may choose to par- ticipate in part-time programs in health, business, agri- s usmessi Meetings this week of public, tax-spending agencies Monday 11 a.m. Cedar Rapids city council.

Career education hulks at how "the arts and sciences can he ap- plied to the world of work. "It seems like some courses have been developed in a vac- uum in terms of what kind of application does this have to me as a person or lo society. Students ask 'Why do have in do this'." If we can't show the relevance, we ought to assess why are offering it." he said. Willis suggested that the ca- reer application of a history course could be illustrated to students by taking them on an archeology dig. Schools should take advan- tage of educational resources other than the classroom teachers which arc available in the community since "edu- cation doesn't occur just be- tween 8 and 3 and within a school." Some schools in the nation have changed graduation re- quirements 10 require stu- dents io spend three-fourths of Larry- Willis the in school aud vne- fonnii in a cooperative educa- tion program or volunteer work. Willis cited a school in Cali- fornia which is being devel- oped around n cluster of oc- cupation.-'.. The campus wiil feature a shopping mall and a small machine repair shop. "Those students will be able io make the transition much easier between the high school program ami the world of work or post high school edu- cation." he said. C o m m unit y involvement and support is vital to those types of endeavors, he said. Willis also pointed out that the career education concept is, broader than the old voca- tional-technical idea. "There was a dichotomy be- tween college preparatory and vocational -1 e c h n i c a 1 pro- grams. Students were locked into either program with no option to cross-over, when there are skills and knowledge nocA'd in Iw'.li areas in ouior to survive. "The goals of career educa- mean a complete neglect of other kinds of goals of educa- tion. They are a part of the goals of education. "If career education isn't an integral part of the regular curriculum, it's going to fail. If it locks kids in further, it's nut going to work either." I'nliko vocational training, career education according to Willis includes looking at both paid and nil-paid types of work, and looking at new- work roles for women. "Tlu1 critical issue is id- ing -siudents with more infor- mation about the options available to them. Parents are given more information about the options available to their son or daughter. "Guidance and counseling is a central theme of career edu- cation. We need to expand that much more than we have done in the Willis said. Career education is not uni- versally embraced. People in the pure academic world. Willis said, fear the trend could mean an end to arts and sciences. "We need to get the two groups working Willis said. "Both have skills and knowledge needed in the other area." Open Monday 9 a.m. 'til 9 p.m. MULEKOFFS O of 2nd Floor DEPARTMENT SPECIALS'.
