Neave, Guy, Ed.
This report presents papers, analyses, and recommendations of a five-day workshop held to explore the relationship of education and youth employment. Five papers delivered at the meetings are included: "Current Assumptions on the Nature and Purpose of Secondary Education and Its Relation to Education 16-19," by Edmund King; "Review of Research into Aspects of the Education and Training of Young Part-Time Students," by Marjorie Holt; "Purposes and Effectiveness of Current Research into the Education of Young People Who Are at Work," by Burkart Sellin; "Methodological Problems Encountered in Research Projects on the Education of Young People at Work," by Hans Seitz; and "Non Methodological Problems of Educational Research in the Area of Young People Aged 16-19 Who Are at Work," by Gerhard Welbers and Udo Reuter. An introductory paper and a summary of the proceedings provide an analysis of the workshop presentations and discussions while a separate section outlines the recommendations that the participants made for future research in the areas of youth motivation, curriculum development, organizational patterns for education, curriculum evaluation, and additional issues such as the needs of disadvantaged youths. In the appendixes are (1) addenda to the Holt and King papers, focusing on other perspectives of their topics and (2) information about the Danish Secretariat for Youth Research. A bibliography of relevant publications lists books, journal articles, research projects, registers and abstracts of research, and research publications of British, Dutch, and Swiss origin. (ELG)
