On Developing Community Work-Education Councils.
Gudenberg, Karl A.
The principal aim of community work-education councils is to make the transition between the worlds of education and work more rational through a deliberative, collaborative process of public and private interests and initiatives. A cross section of the community must work together as peers in a flexible give and take spirit. Councils should avoid exotic or macroscopic problems. Articulation of a set of specific prioritized problems is a productive way to begin. The prerequisites and steps in the development of community work-education councils includes (1) propitious community climate, (2) optimum participation and representation of community interests, (3) informal idea-swapping and bread-breaking, (4) issue discernment and enumeration, (5) forming an ad hoc working committee, (6) goodwill building, (7) goal formulation, (8) building and sustaining commitment, (9) establishing a formal work-education council, and (10) ongoing issue discernment and goal formulation.
