Crucial Issues Pertaining to the Establishment of Community-Education Work Councils.
This paper is one of a series related to various aspects of a pilot project to establish community-education work councils composed of educators, employers, local union representatives, and representatives of community organizations or of the general public. Following a historical overview of the relationship between industry and education and between labor and education, the paper is organized into three sections. Section I discusses some of the major ideas and assumptions underlying the proposed establishment of community work-education councils and identifies seven crucial issues that relate to the youth unemployment rate, adult education opportunities, collaboration vs. cooperation, definition of community, council funding, community interest, and responsibility for establishing councils. Section II contains a review of existing mechanisms similar to the proposed councils. Section III places the seven issues into four main categories and discusses each: Community interest, the question of isolation, the question of poor preparation, and the Federal role. (LMS)
