National Clearinghouse on Transition from School Newsletter, v2 n4 Nov 1983
This newsletter contains articles, policy statements, and reports of research concerning the transition from school to work as well as youth education issues, especially in the United Kingdom. This issue of the journal is organized into two parts. Part 1 contains reports on research projects on student retention in a forest farm community project, post-compulsory schooling, the Asian Program of Educational Innovation for Development, and the International Institute for Educational Planning. Articles concern school enrollment, sex discrimination legislation, the why and how of education, and the youth training scheme in the United Kingdom. Perspectives are given on the Bodhi Farm and on permanent part-time work; and the Anderson and Blakers book "Youth, Transition and Social Research" is reviewed. A new series of summaries is introduced with summaries of government position papers on youth policies and school attendance, while the fourth issue in the "Looking at Other Countries" series focuses on the school to work transition in Japan. The second part of the journal contains two sections, one on research of labor markets and young people as well as a review paper about inequalities in access to postsecondary education. Information about the clearinghouse is included in the document. (KC)
