The Report on the 1995 Regional School-to-Work Forums. A Report of the School-to-Work Roll-out Steering Committee to the Governor's Workforce Development Council.
Rominger, Duane A.; And Others
Sixteen regional forums were held in Minnesota in the fall of 1995 to determine what form the Education and Employment Transition System, or School-to-Work System, mandated by state legislation, would take and which elements it should contain. Forum participants represented business, labor, education, parents, teachers, counselors, and other interested parties. Divided into nominal groups of 8-10 at each of the forums, the 673 participants considered 2 questions: "What would you do to establish school-to-work programs in your area?"; and, "Tell us how to prepare people of all ages for occupations." Seven areas were proposed as major parts of the effort: career education, system design, partnerships, skills and competencies identified by the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills, promotion, work-based learning, and staff development. Recommendations were made to incorporate these areas into a school-to-work system. (KC)
