Educational Patterns and Occupational Structure in Denmark. A Historical and Geographical Analysis of Youth Education, 1945-1975, with an English Summary. Socialforskningsinstituttet Studie 37.
This is the eighth report from the Danish National Institute of Social Research on the longitudinal survey of a generation of adolescents' educational and occupational choices. Presented in Danish, the study also contains an abstract and summary in English. The report analyzes important fields of youth education sought by sixteen-to-nineteen-year-olds for the past thirty years. The educational pattern development of the young is dealt with in the light of shifts in the tripartition of a generation of young people. (Tripartition refers to those who receive upper secondary education preparing for higher education and thus acquiring occupational qualifications of a more theoretical character; those who receive education oriented toward vocational training; and those who receive no education or training after primary school, thus entering the labor market with limited qualifications.) The study attempts to elucidate the overall education-seeking development through an examination of educational patterns development in different regions and in urban and rural districts. The development of educational patterns is related to the main features of the development in the occupational and qualification structure. The study deals with the question of which parts of the educational policy have facilitated educational pattern development. (Author/CSS)
