dc.description.abstract The purposes of this inquiry have been: to examine the needs for career education; to collect and correlate opinions, facts and philosophies reflecting the status of this type of program; and to outline the organization and projection of this format of educational program into the system of publicly operated schools in the province of Nova Scotia. This thesis has been undertaken to help place career education in proper perspective with allied areas of Nova Scotia education. Furthermore, the long range objective has been to provide a guide for the development of programs which will help meet the needs of students in establishing meaningful career goals. The findings suggest the following recommendations: 1. That meaningful programs of career awareness be developed for students in the primary and elementary grades. 2. The programs of career exploration be made available to all students in the middle grades or junior high school. 3. That career orientation and specialization be extended and promoted for the benefit of all senior high school students. The basic needs of man have expanded and similarly the complexities of our technological society have advanced at a tremendous rate. These factors have compounded the already difficult task of making a rational career choice for young people. To help remedy this problem requires intelligent planning and corrective measures by our educational system at all levels. Only in this way can the frustration of making valid career goals be made easier for our young people. Such is the problem and outcome of this thesis.
