Work, Youth and Schooling: Historical Perspectives on Vocational Education.
Kanter, Harvey, Ed.; Tyack, David, Ed.
This book is the product of a conference on the historiography of education and work that was held at Boys Town Center, Stanford University, on August 17-18, 1979. The central purpose of the conference and this report was to evaluate existing research and to develop and assess new interpretations of the historical development of linkages between education and work. Included in this report are the following seven papers, which were presented, critiqued, and discussed during the conference: "Enduring Resiliency: Enacting and Implementing Federal Vocational Education Legislation"; "The Adolescence of Vocational Education"; "Education and the Labor Market: Recycling the Youth Problem"; "Making It in America: Work, Education, and Social Structure"; "Marry, Stitch, Die, or Do Worse: Educating Women for Work in the American Republic"; "The Historical Development of Black Vocational Education"; and "Observations on Selected Trends in American Working-Class Historiography." An introduction summarizing vocationalism in American education is also included. These papers focus primarily on the social, economic, and political context of vocationalism in American secondary education rather than on the details of particular programs and on the broader strategies of linking school to work rather than on tactics. Certain questions are presented in the preface which emerged from the conference as a common agenda for research. (Author/BM)
