Secondary Schooling and the World of Work.
Duck, Greg; Bella, Maureen
This research report, literature review, and conference report focus on developments and possible future trends in secondary education regarding the world of work and implications of these trends for the preservice preparation and inservice professional development of secondary teachers. The research report presents findings of a project to examine the background characteristics, work experence, extent of contact with the world of work, and attitudes toward work of teachers in secondary schools in Queensland. It also details these teachers' views concerning the role and aims of secondary education, particularly as they relate to preparation for the world of work. The literature review addresses these topics related to the school-work relationship: aims of schooling, dissatisfaction with schools, preparing students for work and adult life, and implications for teacher education. Proceedings of a conference on "Secondary Schools and the World of Work: Implications for Teacher Education" are then provided. Materials include the keynote address, summaries of two discussion groups on the role of secondary schools in preparing students for work and adult life and implications for teacher education, and an overview of the conference discussion that considers the context, purposes of secondary education, the need for change, desirable changes, and teacher education.
