Sclanders, Maxinne, Comp.; And Others
Proceedings and papers are presented from a seminar on "Learning and Earning: A study of education and employment opportunities for young people," a report produced by the Commonwealth Tertiary Education Commission of Australia. This report traces the recent rapid decline in the participation of young people in education and the work force. In the introduction to this collection of papers, the report's implications regarding the role of education (especially postsecondary), industry, and the work force in implementing changes to cope with problems and issues raised by the report are discussed. Seminar proceedings are also highlighted, including participant comments on the issues identified in the report and areas where potential solutions may exist. Implications of the report for schools, industry, and postsecondary education are summarized. Six papers presented at the seminar are then provided. Topics covered include: (1) an employer's reaction to the research and comments on the benefits of postsecondary education; (2) recent trends in educational participation, especially in technical and further education; (3) implications of the report for post-school education; (4) recent trends in work force participation of Australian teenagers; (5) a discussion of predictive and prescriptive questions surrounding participation rates in Western Australian secondary schools; and (6) implications of the report for the labor force.
