A Review of the Literature: The Transition of Youth from School to Work. Bulletin No. 4098.
Ryerson, Dean L.
This review identifies and summarizes state and national research and literature dealing with the transition of secondary students from school to work. It is a digest of the printed information available through books, state reports, and national reports; ERIC searches in business, social studies, and education; and surveys and research from the National Center for Research in Vocational Education. The review is organized into five sections, a conclusion, and a bibliography. Section 1 is directed at issues relating to youth unemployment, attitudes, demographics, and values. Section 2 examines the present role of the schools in the transition of youth to the world of work. Related topics are vocational education, reactions to effectiveness of schools, role of schools, and specific programs relating to the topic. In section 3, a brief exploration is made of the needs of business and industry. Issues addressed are skill requirements, attitudinal requirements, business and industry expectations, and the change in skill requirements of business and industry in the United States. Section 4 relates to issues that concern the school of the future, and the last section discusses the partnerships and new relationships that are suggested by the literature. The bibliography contains more than 100 references used for the review. (KC)
