Bridging the Gap: A Selection of Education-To-Work Linkages: Supplemental Report of the State-Level Study in Career Education.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
A selection of 26 operational linkage programs are described in the supplemental document, providing career education practitioners with examples of program development and operation in the area of school-work relationships. The programs are grouped under four categories and in terms of their relationship between education and work: (1) communication, programs that open avenues of information exchange; (2) participation, programs that facilitate recommendation and advice exchanges; (3) substitution, programs that periodically replace school setting or teacher with workplace and supervisor; and (4) integration, programs that aim toward making education and work a single process. Individual program discussions include title, contact persons, location, specific problems addressed, intent, specific program description, educational level and type, history, organizations involved, funding, and impact. An index is provided which cross references each program by its educational level and the service it primarily provides, including: curriculum, evaluation, guidance, manpower utilization, and planning.
