Vocational Education as a Developmental Process
G. Bottoms, G.L. O'Kelley
All youth, as a part of growing up, are entitled to experience the psychological meaning of work, to examine the benefits to society of different forms of work, and to test themselves in different work roles. In addition, every young person should be encouraged to examine exploratory experiences in terms of what they mean to him personally and to plan and pursue educational programs that will help him reach his goal. Yet many youth are reaching early adulthood denied these experiences and are consequently unable to successfully enter employment or adjust to the role of worker.
