Education and work, two of our most basic historical values, are both in trouble in the United States. Education suffers largely because it has given insufficient attention to the role of work in the life-style and values of the individual; work suffers because education more than those involved have failed in adapting traditional work values to the needs of a new and more complex age.
Career education has progressed from an advocacy to a movement, its most rapid advancement has been achieved at the elementary school level.
The problem of this study is to show the role the elementary school should take in career education's assignment to make work possible, meaningful, and satisfying to each individual.
The chief aim of modern education is to help students see some relationship between that which they are presently studying and the possible careers they may choose to follow at some future time. The elementary school is the logical place to begin to provide such material.
The study will basically involve the role taken by Hutchins elementary teachers in Career Education K-3.
