  2. providing all with opportunities to explore the knowledge, skills, technical requirements, working conditions, and political and social environments and responsibilities of the career fields that are open to them
  3. providing guidance services adequate to ensure that every student gains expert help in assessing his/her personal interests, aptitudes, and abilities in making career choices and in planning an appropriate educational program
  4. providing a kindergarten through grade 12 curriculum that incorporates the total concept of career education, and will allow all students to prepare for the occupational fields of their choice by acquiring knowledge and skills that will help them to (a) obtain entry-level employment in jobs not requiring advance training, and (b) continue education and training in post-high school institutions or in business and industry
