Career Ed is near and dear to me. (See: Open Doors A School-Business Partnership)
I feel career ed should be infused into all subject areas and on all grade levels.

Open Doors

A School-Business Partnership

Cybrary Man wrote career education curriculum for Open Doors in New York City in the 1970's and 1980's.  This organization helped the students in the New York City schools learn about the economy, what makes the city function and what possibilities exist for them. 

Open Doors encouraged businesses to open their doors to students through company tours, speakers, part-time jobs, internships, the loan of transportation for class trips, and any other approach that broke down the isolation of schools.

My wife was in charge of the very successful “Lawyers in the Classroom Program.” This program not only had lawyers speak to students but provided trips to the court system.  Cybrary Man is grateful to Open Doors for starting his writing career.
