This Education and Work Program Year-End Report has been prepared by the Education and Work Program of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL) to summarize their work performed under contract with the National Institute of Education. The report has been prepared for educational policy-makers, researchers, and educational practitioners. Section 2 of this report contains an overview of Education and Work Program accomplishments for the year. A summary of NWREL activities in fostering state strategies for experience-based career education (EBCE), a comprehensive alternative education program for secondary students, appears in section 3. Sections 4-6 describe adaptations of EBCE for migrant youth, gifted and talented junior high school students, and adults. Section 7 describes the research done in experiential learning and reports preliminary findings of a study investigating the factors that distinguish excellent from poor learning experiences at employer/community sites.
