Is education and career development classes introduced in high school?
I never received any form of counseling or class in those areas at high school - 70's. I did once I arrived at the community college. But, I think it may be too late these days. I know the junior year is when one should know where to attend college and begin seeking to achieve entrance. I know the ACT and SAT are given the spring of junior year(?) But, should there be classes about 'how to' develop a path in education and career before then? What about testing for best fit with aptitude throughout high school? Things change with learning.
I can't speak for general education, but for special education there are programs for learning how to get a job and actually working in a job. I did a hub on Workability. Usually my district works with the Department of Rehabilitation to aid students who may not go to college (or can't due to disability). As a result of the partnership, some of us will teach career awareness courses and, sometimes, observe the students while they work. Luckily, something like this was written into IDEA.

I'm in my fourth year of college. Spring semester starts the 14th but I really don't want to continue taking classes right now. I've changed my major twice since beginning college 4 years ago so I have a wide variety of classes but not enough of any one discipline to have a degree yet. I thought...
