School and the Workplace: The Need for Stronger Links. A CEA Report.
Canadian Education Association, Toronto (Ontario).
Following a brief introduction, chapter 1 of this study seeks to establish a framework for building stronger links between school and the workplace by calling attention to the need for (1) an ongoing analysis of the local economy in the context of the regional, national, and global economy; (2) a standing representative community consultation, planning, and action group; (3) a varied and comprehensive community-based program to increase the articulation between school and workplace; and (4) realistic and appropriate provincial and federal policies supporting youth participation in the community's economic life. Chapters 2-11 contain reports by separate authors on the current relationship between school and the workplace in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. The study's final chapter, "A Community-based Response," emphasizes the need for a fundamental and radical change in Canadian society's views of what constitutes "work" through a redefinition of the problem beginning at the local level.
