"Options in Education." Transcript Week of January 19, 1976: Can You Get There from Here?--Part III.
George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Inst. for Educational Leadership.; National Public Radio, Washington, DC.
Career guidance and employment are the focus of this transcript of a radio series broadcast by the National Public Radio System entitled "Can You Get There from Here?" The third of a 4-part series on the relationship between schooling and jobs, this program centers around conversations with William Harwood of New Schools Exchange, and Willard Wirtz, former Secretary of Labor and author of "The Boundless Resource." The role of schools is examined on the question of relevancy to jobs and whether they should be training young people to do certain kinds of work, and if so, which people will receive training for which jobs. Other topics discussed are the relationships of schools with family and community. (TA)
