Literature Review

Different researchers have discussed the need for elementary and middle school career
education.

According Ediger (2000), elementary and middle school career education is important. Ediger
stated that "the elementary and middle school years are not too early to begin to achieve a vision
of what one desires to do in life contributing to the world of work". Without career education,
students have unrealistic perceptions of careers due to a lack of knowledge and poor
decision making. Students have limited knowledge and exposure to careers. When students look
at the different industries e.g. sports, media and entertainment, most students underestimate the
skills and time required to have successful careers.

Richard W. Auger, Anne E. Blackhurst, Kay Herting Wahl reported the importance of
elementary and middle school career education. There is increasing evidence in the research
literature that career development is a lifelong process that begins in childhood (Magnuson &
Starr, 2000; Trice, 1991; Trice & McClellan, 1993, 1994). Research also suggested that
elementary-aged children may tend to aspire to careers that are out of the reach of all but a select
few, such as a career as a professional athlete (Bobo, Hildreth, & Durodoye, 1998; Cook et al.,
1996; Helwig, 2001).

Donna E. Palladino Schultheiss, Thomas V. Palma, Alberta J. Manzi cited that research suggests
that students who drop out of school at age 16 have psychologically disengaged from school
as early as Grade 3 (McWhirter, McWhirter, McWhirter, & McWhirter, 1998). Moreover,
sixth-through-ninth-grade children have demonstrated very little understanding of how school
relates to the real world and seem to have little to no awareness of the skills and knowledge
needed for success in the future (Johnson, 2000).
