Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Citizen Education Staff.
This booklet, the third in a series of five on the current state of citizen education, examines the role of business and labor in citizen education. The first half of this booklet consists of a paper on the union role in citizen education. Based on the contributions of participants attending a conference on ways in which labor unions contribute to citizen education, this paper discusses the goals of industrial democracy and ways in which unions foster political knowledge and skills. This discussion concludes with a set of recommendations for strengthening labor education. The remainder of this booklet contains a paper which presents the results of several workshops dealing with the role of business in citizen education. This paper discusses the stake of business in citizen education and includes an analysis of numerous corporate activities related to politics, economics, and public service. Several commentaries on the issues raised by these papers are appended. (EM)
