The career education movement has been one of the top priorities of the U.S. Office of Education since 1971 when the former Assistant Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Dr. Sidney P. Marland, Jr., proposed the educational thrust. Few educational movements in this century have gained such instantaneous notoriety and created as much controversy as career education. Practically every major educational journal has either devoted a special issue or several articles to the topic, and major conferences involving most school disciplines have been conducted to study the concept. Millions of dollars have been expended to develop and field test viable career education models. State supervisors of career education have been employed, and a new position within the U.S. Office, Associate Commissioner for Career Education, has been established to provide national leadership for the movement.
