From School To Work: A European Perspective. Information Series No. 229.
Reubens, Beatrice G.
This paper is a survey of school-to-work transition issues as they have developed in Europe. It contains discussion about the activities, research, and programs of each of four important international organizations, with particular stress on the period after 1975. These organizations are the European Community, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Council of Europe, and the Nordic Council. Topics examined variously under the four organizations include defining the transition from school to work, difficulties in the transition, proposed transition programs, linked work and training, education for sixteen- to nineteen-year-olds, preventive work in the school system, compulsory education, upper secondary education, higher education, new studies, and objectives of preparation for work. A summary and conclusions are appended. (CT)
