"Everyone's Favorite Solution" Can't Be All Bad: A Reply to James O'Toole.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The author considers one section of a document (Everyone's Favorite Solution in "The Reserve Army of the Underemployed") by James O'Toole to be an attack on vocational education in which seven charges are made. The charges are rebutted with the intention of illustrating the positive contributions that vocational education can make to the goals of career education. It is noted that any long-run strategy (for solving the education/work dilemma in general, or the problems of the underemployed in particular) that ignores or fails to take full advantage of vocational education will be both unwise and unproductive. Vocational education is not viewed as the sole answer, but as an essential element in a total career education strategy since, according to the author, the career education concept would never be made an operational reality unless all concerned with this movement recognize and embrace the goals and objectives of vocational education.
